Choice between 'green or growth' is a false one, CBI chief says | Environment | guardian.co.uk
The UK's large and fast-growing green economy delivered a third of the nation's growth in the last year and is set to add 0.5% to GDP if the government untangles the "gnarly mess" of its policy, the director general of the CBI said on Thursday. "The government has to end the political ping-pong," John Cridland said. "The so-called 'choice' between going green or going for growth is a false one. With the right policies in place, green business will be a major pillar of our future growth." The intervention by the UK's leading business group, representing 240,000 companies, is significant as the chancellor George Osborne has justified his attacks on the green agenda as defending business. "We're not going to save the planet by putting our country out of business," Osborne said in October.
