On Oct. 12, the United Kingdom government released its Clean Growth Strategy, which aims to cut carbon emissions while driving economic growth.

Harrington added: "The government's Clean Growth Strategy will set out how the whole of the United Kingdom can benefit from the global move to a low carbon economy".

Nick Molho, Executive Director of the Aldersgate Group, said the clear commitment to deliver on the UK's climate targets will be welcomed by businesses.

In a 164-page document crammed with 50 low-carbon policies and plans, the Government has planted the seeds for a new era of green economic growth which replicates the offshore wind model and offers major opportunities for United Kingdom plc.

Understanding the Financial Health of Abbott Laboratories (NYSE:ABT)
V Wealth Management LLC purchased a new position in shares of Abbott Laboratories in the 2nd quarter valued at about $127,000. Raymond James Trust decreased Exxon Mobil Corp (NYSE:XOM) stake by 24,585 shares to 296,066 valued at $23.90M in 2017Q2.

Shaun Spiers, Executive Director of Green Alliance, believes going green is crucial for the future of the United Kingdom economy and was happy to finally see decisive action.

"With cost reduction recognised as an important part of the continued growth of our low-carbon energy system, it is startling that cheap, popular onshore wind and solar PV are excluded once again from plans for the UK's energy future", said Claire Mack, Scottish Renewables chief executive. It is certainly a welcome move in the right direction. Today's long-anticipated Clean Growth Strategy is a welcome step towards clarity, and businesses will be pleased by much of the content.

He added: "But there remains significant heavy lifting in other parts of the economy, such as heat, transport and improving the efficiency of our homes and industry and concerted efforts will be needed to ensure we can meet our ambitions".

"We can not have a low cost, low carbon and secure energy transformation without these technologies", Skorupska added.

Current owners of diesel cars will be allowed to continue to drive their vehicles in the city, the reports have suggested. Paris officials have taken to making public transportation free on days when pollution levels are especially high.

"But meeting the UK's carbon targets is ultimately a numbers game and the real proof will be in the delivery".

The Northern Energy Taskforce suggests the money should form part of deals with areas to make homes more efficient and rolling out solar panels.

The new Clean Growth Strategy for the first time sets out how the Government will distribute in excess of £2.5 billion worth of investments to support low carbon innovation from 2015 through to 2021 - including up to £505 million from the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy's Energy Innovation Programme, which aims to accelerate the commercialization of innovative clean energy technologies and processes.
