UK needs ambitious green plan to keep up with allies

Britain needs its own ambitious green investment plan to keep up with its allies, a Labour frontbencher has said, amid an increasingly bitter row over whether Keir Starmer should stick to his £28bn pledge. Jonathan Reynolds, the shadow business secretary, said the UK should come up with its own version of Joe Biden’s $369bn (£290bn) Inflation Reduction Act, which has provided support to a range of technologies including electric cars and renewable power. Speaking from Davos, Reynolds warned that the UK risked losing business to the US if it did not commit to a significant plan of its own, even as some around the Labour leader said it would risk damaging the party in the polls. https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2024/jan/21/uk-needs-ambitious-green-plan-keep-up-allies-labour-frontbencher

        Indeed all allies of the UK are miles ahead of the climate change game leaving the UK lagging way behind

          It's evident that a robust green investment plan is crucial for the UK to stay competitive on the global stage and align itself with allies in the pursuit of sustainable development. Jonathan Reynolds' call for a UK version of Joe Biden’s Inflation Reduction Act reflects the urgent need for comprehensive initiatives to support technologies such as electric cars and renewable power.

                It is not that they lack green plans, they don't have the will to adopt them.

                  It's definitely factual that the green plan needs to be hastened for a better and safe sustainable future.
