The Green New Deal is a response to the credit crunch and wider energy and food crises, and to the lack of comprehensive, joined-up action from politicians. It calls for:

  • Massive investment in renewable energy and wider environmental transformation in the UK, leading to,
  • The creation of thousands of new green collar jobs
  • Reining in reckless aspects of the finance sector – but making low-cost capital available to fund the UK’s green economic shift
  • Building a new alliance between environmentalists, industry, agriculture, and unions to put the interests of the real economy ahead of those of footloose finance
