Britain's manufacturers are calling on the Government for the 'clarity and predictability' they need to invest in the low carbon economy by setting out its vision by the end of this year on how industry can deliver it. In its new report 'Tech for Growth: delivering green growth through technology', the manufacturers' organisation the EEF looks at how Government can realise the potential of key manufacturing sectors and unlock investment in breakthrough technologies that will generate a step change in their carbon emissions.

The EEF maintains this would help UK manufacturers to take advantage of significant export opportunities. But its report also suggests that the UK's position as sixth largest producer and provider of low carbon goods is currently faltering, with manufacturing output contracting.

Gareth Stace, EEF Head of Climate and Environment Policy, said: "The low carbon economy represents a massive opportunity for manufacturers and a major prize for our economy. But we are currently failing to take advantage of this opportunity to be a world leader in low carbon goods and services."
