A Green Recovery

Labour is ambitious for Britain. Future generations will judge us by the choices we make today to tackle both the unemployment crisis and the climate and ecological emergency.


Today, Labour challenged the government to ‘Build it in Britain’ again. We’re calling for £30 billion of urgent investment to support 400,000 clean, new jobs of the future through a green economic recovery from the Covid crisis.

Britain faces a jobs crisis and a climate emergency. We need decisive action now to recover jobs, retrain workers and rebuild businesses.

Our report, launched today, sets out how the Government can deliver high-skilled jobs in every part of the UK as we build a cleaner economy. The time for talking is over — we need bold action to build the low-carbon infrastructure of the future right here in Britain.
