recruitment may become a key drive for the government in the future
as they need to create more green jobs to avoid falling behind
other countries in this field, it has been stated.
Peter Young, the chairman of the Aldersgate Group, a green business
lobby group, feels that the UK is not doing its long-term prospects
any good by failing to provide enough funding to the area.
The 2009 budget stated that the government's low emission targets
would benefit from a £405 million investment.
Meanwhile, the Environmental Audit Committee has also noted that a
lack of skills in the green jobs market could have negative
connotations for the UK.
Mr Young said: "The UK must urgently develop the skills base across
the economy to ensure it can compete with the likes of Germany and
the US in key low-carbon markets.
"This is essential to create the new jobs for the economic recovery
and vital for long-term competitiveness."
Green Party leader Caroline Lucas stated after the recent
Pre-Budget Report that jobs that fit under the green umbrella are
needed in the UK.
