The low carbon sector is booming with companies from Scotland. That’s according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS) which released data showing there are more Scottish companies active in the low carbon sector than anywhere else in the UK.
The ONS revealed that 5.2 per cent of non-financial Scottish businesses are involved in clean tech, energy efficiency and renewables, and providing the equivalent of 21,500 full time jobs.
Lang Banks, Director at WWF Scotland, said: “These figures underline the importance of low-carbon businesses to Scotland and the rest of the UK, by helping grow our economy and creating jobs. However, if we are to enjoy the multiple benefits of the transition to a zero-carbon future we need our political leaders to commit to a renewable energy future by bringing forward the policies to realise our potential.
“For example, Scotland could become the EU’s first fully renewable electricity nation by 2030. But this will only happen if Scottish Ministers commit to this ambition and ensure their forthcoming energy strategy majors on renewable power, flexibility, demand reduction, and energy storage.
“With opinion polling showing that over 70 per cent of people see clear economic benefits from renewable energy, this is an approach that the public could get behind.”
