EIC responds to the Government's Industrial Strategy


Commenting on the publication of the Government's Industrial Strategy, EIC's Executive Director, Matthew Farrow, said:  

"The UK environmental sector is well-placed to make a real contribution to the industrial strategy.  Across areas such as air quality, land remediation, laboratory analysis and flood defence, we have innovative world class companies and a global reputation. The aims of the Strategy: to create jobs across the UK, to reach new export markets and to innovate, are all things the environmental sector already does and could do more of with smart policy making in areas such as public procurement and regulation.  We will be responding in detail and exploring the possibility of a Sector Deal as suggested in the Green Paper."
