The government's publication on the green economy 'Enabling the Transition to a Green Economy: government and business working together' is a publication which sets out what the transition to a green economy means for businesses. It is the government's response to requests from the private sector for greater clarity on what government means by a "green economy", the policies being put in place to achieve this and how they come together.
Universities and colleges
This is hugely significant because it will be the UK’s further and higher education sectors that lead that transition through skills training, research and student development. Colleges and universities need to prepare for this role and Learning in Future Environments (LiFE) can help you do this.

In additon to the main report, Government have provided guides for small businesses and three case studies highlighting how the chemicals, food and drink and automotive sectors are responding to the issues of moving to a green economy. A vital read for EAUC Company Members.
