Northern Ireland needs a new direction.
The financial crisis and the credit crunch have brought the failings of current economic and social policies sharply into focus.
These global financial upheavals have exposed a wide and systemic failure in how we do business and organise our management of resources.
The world is facing a serious a crisis in terms of the depletion of our fundamental resources and going forward this will impact on every aspect of our lives - from the food we eat to the energy we use.
This situation can be seen as an opportunity to transform our economic and social system into one that will offer our society a future based on stability, self sufficiency and sustainability.
This is not an ideological stance – it is fact and we are already experiencing the effects of diminishing resources in the rising price of fuel and food.
In Northern Ireland we are well placed to be at the forefront of this change to take advantage of all the benefits offered by the need for skills, industry and services for a global and local low-carbon economy.
Northern Ireland needs to play its part in international efforts prevent the worst consequences of climate change.
Introducing legislation to limit our greenhouse gas emissions will provide a clear framework within which we can set future policy.
It will also send a signal to investors that we are committed to the technologies required to take Northern Ireland forward towards a low carbon economy, giving them confidence to invest in the green tech sector.
These measures will create jobs, lead to a fairer society and help Northern Ireland play its part in the global fight against climate change.
It’s Economy, for People and Planet.
The Green Party will ensure that all policies are benchmarked on whether they are good for the economy, good for people and good for the environment.
This type of management is the only option for future prosperity.
