Blue & Green Daily: Wednesday 22 October round up
Today on Blue & Green Tomorrow, we asked the experts what they think of this year’s Good Money Week.
We also reported that the UK’s wind farms have been outperforming its nuclear power plants, while MPs have urged the government to step up its efforts to promote recycling.
Douglas Flint, chairman of high street bank HSBC, has criticised EU rules that will cap bankers’ bonuses at twice their fixed pay, claiming they are a “retrograde step” that could make it difficult for banks to hire staff.
As the European Commission finalises its EU emission and renewable energy targets, business groups and trade unionists are calling for ambitious plans to encourage investment, create jobs and secure a low-carbon future.
More energy was generated by the UK’s wind farms than by its nuclear power plants on Tuesday, the National Grid has revealed.
A committee of MPs has warned that the UK could fail to meet the EU target of recycling 50% of household waste by 2020, unless the government takes action and shows leadership on the issue.
A new report commissioned by UK farming bodies has claimed that EU plans to ban pesticides could reduce crop yields, causing food prices to go up and threatening food security.
Good Money Week is well underway, with events being held across the country to promote and celebrate sustainable and ethical finance opportunities. The annual awareness-raising event is truly for everyone – not just traditional investors and finance professionals but for all customers and users of financial products.
