Commission on Environmental Markets and Economic Performance

Volume 475: debated on Thursday 1 May 2008

The Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform
(Mr. John Hutton)

My right hon. Friends the Secretaries of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, and for Innovation, Universities and Skills and I are publishing today the report “Building a Low Carbon Economy: Unlocking Innovation and Skills”. This forms the Government response to the Commission on Environmental Markets and Economic Performance (CEMEP), and sets out how Government will work with business to seize the major economic opportunities of moving to a low carbon, resource efficient economy. I have placed copies of the response in the Libraries of both Houses.
