Greenpeace Response to Green Investment Bank in Queen’s Speech

Responding to the inclusion of the Green Investment Bank in today’s Queen’s Speech, Louise Hutchins, senior energy campaigner for Greenpeace, said:

“The Green Investment Bank could well be a key vehicle to help us out of these tough economic times, and also a clever way to tackle climate change while giving a much needed boost to cutting edge, clean home-grown technologies.

“But it will struggle to do these important things if the Bank is little more than a poorly funded quango. It’s got to have the borrowing powers that will see it succeed, and that will bring success to the British renewable energy industry.”
