Scottish governments strategy targets green economy (Eco news)

Scottish governments strategy targets green economy
BBC News reported

As many as 600 companies which could produce goods and services for the "green economy" are being targeted as part of a new economic strategy.

The move to a low-carbon economy is the most significant addition to the Scottish government's strategy.

Economic agency Scottish Enterprise wants companies to tap into the boom in orders for renewable energy and other low-carbon technologies.

Engineering and aerospace firms are among those it thinks could benefit.

Finance Secretary John Swinney said a "low-carbon" economy and innovation in areas such as renewable energy could see millions of pounds of investment.

He also wanted a 50% increase in exports by 2017, as well as boosting inward investment.

Ministers have already pledged to give every young person a training opportunity.
