What would an economy that faced up to the reality of the climate emergency look like? To truly meet the challenge, the UK must rethink our industrial and economic dependency on materials and products sourced from around the world.
Green House is exploring how trade, industry and infrastructure need to change to meet zero carbon goals. This work forms part of a wider project led by the Green European Foundation involving Green House in the UK, Wetenschappelijk Bureau Groenlinks in the Netherlands and Green Foundation Ireland. It builds on our recent work envisioning a postgrowth Britain and our focus on climate jobs, which quantified the employment that could be created across the UK in facing up to the climate emergency.
