Green Growth Wales: Investing in the Future

The Welsh Government’s focus on green growth is outlined in its new prospectus, Green Growth Wales: Investing in the Future. The prospectus sets out how the sustainable use of the country's natural resources can create a new economic model that will deliver wealth creation and economic growth.

The prospectus sets out what Wales can offer the business community in terms of green growth, particularly its wealth of natural resources, government policies and business support. It identifies the fact that Wales boasts 1,200km of coast line, around 32,000 km2 of sea, seven major ports and significant potential for low carbon energy generation from marine energy, hydro, solar, onshore and off shore wind.

The prospectus also outlines investment in infrastructure, including a £2 billion investment by water companies in the period to 2020.
