Invest £500 million to help energy-intensive industries move to low-carbon techniques

Last updated 2 weeks ago

We will invest £500 million to help energy-intensive industries move to low-carbon techniques.

Conservative Party Manifesto 2019, p.55

Our verdict

  • This is a promise of investment to help energy-intensive industries lower their carbon emissions.
  • We’ve found no evidence of any such investment to date.  The government has consulted on extending the Climate Change Agreement scheme, but that is a business tax break, not new investment.
  • Since there is currently no plan to deliver this promise, this policy is ‘not started’

 

 

 

There's always room for debate

We’re serious about providing clear, up-to-date, non-partisan information. We focus on being consistent and fair in how we reach our verdicts, and always explain our reasoning. But there is always room for debate. So if you see it differently, we’d love you to tell us why. Or even better, submit an edit.
