Boosting the economy and decarbonising the economy can go hand-in-hand

Cadent

2 min read

Cadent look forward to working with the Government over the coming weeks and months to building a future economy better, greener, and faster.

Whilst most commentators are picking up on the slogan, “build, build, build”, it was the longer version of Boris Johnson’s slogan, “build better, build greener, build faster”, that really landed with Cadent. Here was the Prime Minister pledging not only to rebuild the economy after the economic shock of Covid-19, but to do so in a way that is even better than before. 

Cadent are already planning for this future and over the last couple of weeks we have been outlining to Government our vision for a green recovery. Boosting the economy and decarbonising the economy can go hand-in-hand, for us, they can be one and the same.

We have some great innovative projects already underway across the country, such as our HyDeploy project in Staffordshire or our HyNet project in the North West, but we are keen to do even more to help the UK to decarbonise and to grow the green economy here in the UK. 

What is clear from Boris Johnson’s speech is that he shares this vision – Britain leading the world in the green economy. It was great to hear the Prime Minister talk about the UK “leading the world in …hydrogen technology… and carbon capture and storage…”. We look forward to working with the Government over the coming weeks and months to building a future economy better, greener, and faster.
