Paper highlights gulf between plans and actions says GMB Union

GMB, the energy union, says the Committee on Climate Change report shows the Government needs to stop the rhetoric and deliver on net zero.

Gary Carter, GMB National Officer, said:

"The Committee on Climate Change report highlights the gulf between government plans and action.

“If we’re to halt climate change then delivery is required.

“To hit net zero, the UK needs a balanced energy policy combining renewables, scaled up electrification, new nuclear and investment in hydrogen and new technologies.

“More renewables, electric vehicle infrastructure, new nuclear and more ambitious plans for a hydrogen nation will reduce carbon emissions and produce thousands of well paid, skilled jobs.

"The Government needs to stop the rhetoric, deliver on net zero and speed up work with local authorities, industry and trade unions.”
