One million low-carbon jobs by 2050

The Local Government Association (LGA) has published a report saying nearly 700,000 jobs in the low-carbon and renewable energy economy could be created by 2030 in England, and 1.2 million by 2050.

The report said the rise in green jobs could help offset expected job losses due to the coronavirus crisis.

Councillor Sir Richard Leese, chair of the LGA’s City Regions Board, said: “Demand for green jobs is due to sky-rocket as we move towards a net zero economy and local government, with its local knowledge and expertise, is best placed to ensure the workforce in every region of the country can successfully surf the new wave of employment opportunities.”
