'Transition to the green economy – a business perspective'
John Cridland CBE, Director-General, CBI
In his speech on 2nd June, CBI director-general John Cridland will set out business’ vision for the UK’s energy future and what the new Government can do to get us there. This vision is of an economy which is both growing and greening, where there is enough energy from a diverse range of sources to power and heat homes and industry, where resources are used efficiently and consumers are informed, engaged and in control of their bills.
His remarks will touch upon how we can drive investment to secure and decarbonise our power sector, stimulate the consumer and business market for energy efficiency, ensure the UK’s industrial competitiveness and play a strong role in Europe and internationally to achieve a supportive framework for investments.
As Director-General of the CBI, John Cridland is the key spokesman for the business community in the media, on public platforms and with the government. He leads the CBI – the voice of business - in the UK and represents it internationally.
John is a Board member of Business in the Community and a UK Commissioner for Employment and Skills. He was Vice Chair of the National Learning and Skills Council between 2007-2010. He spent 10 years on the Low Pay Commission and the ACAS Council, and was also a member of the Council of Cranfield University and the Commission on Environmental Markets and Economic Performance.
He was awarded a CBE for services to business in 2006 and Honorary Doctorates from the University of Lincoln in 2011 and the University of Bedfordshire in 2013.
