The Trade Union Congress (TUC) cautioned, up to 660,000 job opportunities could be at danger if the kingdom doesn’t succeed in reaching its net-zero goal as rapidly as other countries.
The regime prom-ised to reduce carbon emissions by 78 percent by 2035. However, the TUC worries a lot of jobs could be turned offshore to countries providing better green infrastructure and support for decarbunisation.
The union body is calling for a USD117, 59 billion green revival package to make 1.2 million green roles.
TUC study from June demonstrates the king-dom is presently ranked second last amidst G7 economies for its investment in green infrastructure and jobs.
But the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) states the TUC’s claims are incorrect and that it does not distinguish their tactic.— MENAFN
