The UK is massively behind the rest of the Europe and playing catch up

GMB, the energy union, has responded to the Government’s ‘Greenprint’ for lower carbon transport.

Gary Carter, GMB National Officer, said:

“Talking big on the environment ahead of a climate summit is all well and good.

“But we need proper investment, a proper plan and real action; action to create well paid green jobs and affordable, net zero carbon transport options for consumers.

“We desperately need investment in hydrogen and bio-methane technologies as power options for HGV and construction vehicles”.

“The UK is massively behind the rest of the Europe and playing catch up.

“The Nissan and Vauxhall announcements are a much-needed start, but Government intervention is required to create well-paid jobs and ensure workers get the skills needed in EV installation, automotive electrification and battery supply chains.”
