Aldersgate Group calls for sustainable economic growth based on ‘green foundations’ 

Future economic prosperity and high environmental and social standards must go hand in hand, according to a new report launched in the House of Commons (UK) on 6 June 2006. Commissioned by the Aldersgate Group and authored by David Wilkinson and Claire Monkhouse from IEEP, the report - ‘Green Foundations: Better Regulation and a Healthy Environment for Growth and Jobs’ - aims to nail the myth that ‘better regulation for growth and jobs’ must mean cutting environmental standards in order to reduce burdens on industry.
