And there is actually an 11 – make the City of London a global centre for green finance.
“We will fight them on the beaches”. Boris Johnsons ‘Green Industrial Revolution’ is strong on rhetoric (and short on detail). There is also a sense in which it lacks ambition and is short on impact. Nevertheless, it does represent a constructive attempt to grapple with climate change and the proof of the pudding will be in the eating.
What disappoints me the most, however, is the sole focus on a restricted target of carbon emissions. The E in SG is much bigger and much broader than carbon emission and Johnson’s strategy does not touch the S and the G. A missed opportunity?
