More than a million new green jobs could be created by 2050.
That's the suggestion made by the Local Government Association (LGA) in a new report published today, which predicts nearly 700,000 direct jobs could be created in England’s low carbon and renewable energy economy by 2030, rising to more than 1.18 million by 2050.
The LGA is urging the government to work with councils to develop post-coronavirus economic recovery options, including proposals for a jobs guarantee programme, national skills and employment schemes and devolved funding for councils and combined authorities so they can work with businesses and education providers to train and retrain young people and older workers.
