That this House welcomes the cross party commitment for a rapid transition to a low carbon and resource efficient economy; recognises that the challenges of climate change and resource depletion require urgent action; believes that explicit policies are required to stimulate UK jobs and wealth creation in a global environmental goods and services sector that is currently valued at £3.2 trillion; further welcomes the Aldersgate Group's report Accelerating the Transition: Priorities for the first 100 days of the new Government, which calls for quick and decisive action to ensure an effective carbon price to help drive investments in low carbon technologies, the creation of a Green Investment Bank with a significant level of capital, a more comprehensive industrial strategy to maximise the economic opportunities for the UK, greater accountability across government departments to ensure cross-cutting challenges are effectively addressed and the implementation of a national energy efficiency delivery plan; and recognises that the achievement of these objectives would help reduce the UK's carbon emissions and reliance on overseas energy and ensure the new green technologies and jobs of the future are developed and deployed in the UK.
