Green pandemic recovery will deliver more jobs and returns

Green pandemic recovery will deliver more jobs and returns, study claimsEnsuring measures to boost economies after the pandemic are “green” will create more jobs and better financial returns, as well as tackle climate change, experts have said.

 

In the UK, investment in renewables projects, fitting homes and buildings with extra insulation, improving broadband and encouraging electric cars and ebikes could all help kick-start the economy and cut emissions.

 

It has been estimated the pandemic will lead to an 8% drop in emissions in 2020, in the face of industry shutdowns, recession and huge reductions in road and air travel.

 

But the world needs to see annual cuts of 7.6% in the next decade to curb global warming below dangerous levels.
The world could leap “from the Covid frying pan into the climate fire”, unless governments intervene to shift economies to clean pathways as they recover, a study warned.

 

For the study, a team including Nobel prize winner Joseph Stiglitz and leading British climate economist Lord Stern assessed the economic and climate impact of taking a green route out of the pandemic.

 

The assessment, which is being published in the Oxford Review of Economic Policy, surveyed officials in 53 countries on their recovery measures and drew on lessons from the 2008 financial crisis.

 

It found green projects – ones that reduce emissions – also create more jobs, deliver higher short-term returns for the money spent and lead to increased long-term savings compared to traditional fiscal stimulus.

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But
    maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two
    pictures. Maybe you could space it out better? asmr 0mniartist

    Amazing blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m
    a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid
    option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally confused ..
    Any ideas? Cheers! scoliosis

    Hello there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was
    wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
    I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers
    and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be great if
    you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    Hey! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d
    figured I’d ask. Would you be interested
    in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring
    a blog post or vice-versa? My site addresses a lot of
    the same topics as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you’re interested feel free to send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you!
    Terrific blog by the way!
