Commission on Environmental Markets and Economic Performance

Volume 701: debated on Thursday 1 May 2008

My right honourable friend the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (John Hutton) has made the following Written Ministerial Statement.

My right honourable friends the Secretaries of State for the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, the Department 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 the House.
