Coalition failing on majority of green pledges analysis shows
The Guardian reported

The government has made moderate or no progress on more than three-quarters of its green promises because of obstruction by the Treasury and business departments and a lack of public backing from the prime minister, a stinging report from the UK's major environmental groups has concluded.

David Cameron pledged within days of taking office that he would lead the "greenest government ever" but the report found that good progress was being made on just seven out of 29 environmental pledges made in the coalition agreement.

John Sauven, executive director of Greenpeace, blamed government infighting: "This report shows that our Treasury and Department of Business are not backing British companies in the clean technology race. Those responsible for our economy seem blind to the opportunities. If the government don't wake up and grasp this generational chance, then UK PLC will lose out on jobs, on growth and much needed revenues."
