Cllr Milne explores renewable energy industry with Harland & Wolff Ltd.

Monday 28 August 2017

Green Party East Belfast Councillor Georgina Milne and Party Secretary Rowan Tunnicliffe met with Harland and Wolff Ltd. to discuss how the Green Party can work with local businesses involved in the renewable energy industry.

Cllr Milne said “The Green Party and companies involved in the renewable energy market have many common aims and objectives.

“We both want to see increased investment in renewable energy to reduce our climate footprint, promote sustainable, skilled jobs – particularly in East Belfast, and bring more money into Northern Ireland’s local economy.

“Our message is clear – the Green Party wants to work with business, but not for business.

“Together, through co-operation and partnership we can transform Northern Ireland’s economy from one blighted by low wages and insecure jobs to a truly leading economy. This type of economy can also help tackle the threats from climate change and out of control greenhouse gas.”

Cllr Milne concluded;

“This transformation will benefit local companies, workers, consumers and the planet, and the Green Party is the best placed to deliver it.”
