Investors respond to UK’s plan to usher in a ‘green industrial revolution’

The UK’s prime minister has outlined plans for a “green industrial revolution” in what is expected to mark the beginning of the country’s path to net-zero emissions.

Boris Johnson’s 10-point plan, covering clean energy, transport, nature and innovative technologies, is expected to allow the country to “forge ahead with eradicating its contribution to climate change by 2050”.

Tony Dalwood, CEO of Gresham House, said the move to ban the sale of petrol and diesel cars by 2030 was an ambitious step by the government to reduce carbon emissions and will have a significant impact on the automotive sectors as well as consumers to make more sustainable choices in future.
