The green industrial revolution

30th November 2020

The Government has released its plan for a ‘green industrial revolution’. It was announced at a recent briefing that by 2050, it plans to achieve net-zero carbon, pouring into it a huge £12 billion investment.

The aim is to make the UK the world leader in clean wind energy – creating jobs, slashing carbon emissions and boosting exports. A ten-point plan pledges to make home, schools and hospitals greener, warmer and more energy efficient.

The Prime Minister explained:

“Although this year has taken a very different path to the one, we had expected, I haven’t lost sight of our ambitious plans to level up across the country.

“My ten-point plan will create, support and protect hundreds of thousands of green jobs, whilst making strides towards net zero by 2050.”

As a company dedicated to raising sustainability standards, Plastic Surgeon welcomes this news.  Over the last few years, we have been working tirelessly to reduce landfill and consequently carbon emissions, by adopting a repair over replacement approach.

We ‘re extremely proud and passionate of our green credentials and those that our clients in the housebuilding, construction and insurance sectors have obtained by working alongside us.

In 2019 we achieved a saving in landfill of 4,376 tonnes, completing well over 936,0000 individual repairs, this figure continues to increase each year.

We work alongside our clients to develop green strategies.  Just recently we’ve been working alongside Barratt Homes, assisting them to achieve a key target of reducing waste by 20% by 2025.

Mike Aitken, Managing Director at Plastic Surgeon commented:

“We are passionate about working with housebuilders, contractors and insurers in developing green strategies and have been doing so for many years.

“This announcement from the government will ensure that the green agenda is further intensified, and industries can come together to achieve a greener future”.
