UK 'must prioritise green economic recovery'
Bosses from leading firms have called on Boris Johnson to prioritise a green UK economic recovery following the coronavirus.
As the UK eases restrictions and tries to repair damage to the economy from the crisis, the chief executives of more than 60 British organisations called on the government to:
Invest in infrastructure, technology and skills to create jobs that help sustainability
Exclude companies in "polluting industries" that do not have a proper climate plan
Restore ecosystems on land and in our oceans by incentivising walking and cycling
Support sustainable food, farming and fishing
Swiftly pass environmental laws and bring in targets in law to restore ecosystems
Bring global leaders together to plan for a sustainable economic recovery
The signatories to an open letter to Boris Johnson included Iceland Foods, Barratt Developments, The Body Shop, Ben and Jerry's, the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB), the National Trust and Greenpeace UK.
