Construction4Growth is an industry campaign that calls for government to invest in construction and support growth as the best way out of recession.
Growth in the construction industry is crucial to the wellbeing of the UK economy. In the last year, 45,000 jobs have been lost in the industry and this number will continue to rise without Government interference. The campaign, which is supported by more than 900 senior industry representatives from the UK construction industry, addresses three main strands:
• Investment for growth – An investment in construction will drive growth and create jobs
• Skills for growth – Skills are essential for UK growth, consequently the Government needs to finalise its vocational education policy and support skills and training opportunities in schools, across apprenticeships and into higher-education
• Green for growth – The Green Deal has the potential to boost growth and create jobs in construction
The C4G campaign therefore aims to lobby government to increase investment, develop skills and support the green agenda in driving growth through construction.
