Supporting energy efficiency standards

InfluenceMap Comment:

Evidence suggests support for energy efficiency standards (Financial Times, September 2015)

Extract from Source:

A slew of green policy reversals has sapped the UK’s hard-won credibility on climate change just when it matters most globally, the head of the country’s biggest business lobby group has warned. John Cridland, director-general of the CBI, said the moves had sent a “worrying signal” about the UK as it prepared to join nearly 200 countries to strike a UN climate accord in Paris in December. [...]  But the rollback of renewable subsidies and “mixed messages” on energy efficiency measures announced by ministers since the May election “send a worrying signal about the UK as a place for low-carbon investment”, he told the FT. “This seemingly weakened commitment risks impacting our standing on the global stage at the exact moment we need to stand up and be counted,” he said.
