UK Industrial Strategy a Pathway for Sustainable Growth

January 24, 2017

Viridor, part of Pennon Group, has today (Monday 23rd January 2017) backed the Government’s Industrial Strategy, praising it as “a pathway for sustainable economic growth.”

Group Chief Executive Officer, Chris Loughlin, said:

“Viridor warmly welcomes the Government’s consultation to identify the priorities for a long-term industrial strategy for the UK.  The strategy is timely, bold and a pathway for sustainable economic growth.

“Not only does it rightly look to investment in next generation infrastructure, it prioritises energy and the low-carbon economy.  But more than that, the emerging industrial strategy, by using areas such as smart procurement, has the potential to boost resource policy, aligning it to a new manufacturing framework.  Doing so offers the promise of ensuring the UK has high-quality secondary raw materials to feed a new generation of manufacturing firms across the country.

“As one of the UK’s leading environmental infrastructure groups, investing over £1.8bn over the last five years and employing over 4,800 people, we look forward to working with government over the time ahead.”
