Green Jobs for Wales consultation

Green Jobs for Wales

A consultation document has been drawn up outlining proposals and seeking your views on how the strategy will be formed.

This consultation will deal with how the Welsh Assembly Government can support organisations and employers in Wales to best improve their own environmental performance and take advantage of the new growth market in green products and services.

Your views on the proposals we describe in the document will be extremely important to us, and will guide us in deciding how the ultimate strategy is structured and targeted.

Anyone with an interest in this area is invited to respond and we are particularly keen to encourage responses from organisations such as small, medium and large enterprises, business representative organisations, community or voluntary groups, corporate social enterprises, community interest companies and public sector organisations.

The strategy, which will be drawn up following the consultation process, will play an important part in helping Wales reduce its carbon footprint.

In order to reduce the amount of paper used in this consultation exercise, please submit a response electronically wherever possible by completing and emailing the Word version of the consultation document to: businessandenvironment@wales.gsi.gov.uk.
