Does the UK really need a green strategy?

It seems that each and every company and each and every political party in the UK have jumped on the green bandwagon over the last decade. We have seen everything from green credit cards to green bank accounts, from recycling bonuses to recycling points and everything else in between. But does the UK actually need a green policy and will it be beneficial to everybody in the long run?

The truth is that the government of today needs to have a green policy in place to ensure a reduction in harm to the environment which is continuing to increase despite attempts by world by governments to contain the problem. However, the controversial issue with regards to green strategies is the fact that the vast majority always seem to see consumers and businesses incurring significant tax charges.

The Conservative party has issued a new policy on green issues and will be using the "carrot" as opposed to the "stick" approach in the future. It will be interesting to see how this particular policy evolves if the Conservative party is elected to office at the next general election. The truth is that green issues are here to stay and they will remain a long-term part of the political arena.
