Claire Perry is Minister for Climate Change and Industry at the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. Elected to Parliament in 2010 to represent the Devizes constituency in Wiltshire, she has previously served as parliamentary private secretary, a government whip, and rail minister. One of the most notable events during her time as Climate Change Minister has been the launch of the long-awaited Clean Growth Strategy, which sets out over 162 pages the government’s plans to deliver deep decarbonisation across the UK economy. My vision, and that set out recently in the government’s Clean Growth Strategy, is for a green economy that creates opportunities across the whole country – new jobs, technologies and businesses – while cutting costs for consumers and contributing to our climate change targets. To make this happen we need to build on Britain’s strengths in science and innovation – that is why we’ve committed £2.5bn to low carbon innovation.
