Scotland has a strong and diverse economy that must be secured for the future. We know our economy should offer security, jobs and decent livelihoods for all, and not pursue growth for growth’s sake. To enjoy a prosperous future we must begin the transition to a sustainable green economy, one that prioritises fair pay and investment in low-carbon industry, and which breaks from the economics of austerity.
Scottish Greens will campaign to reverse government cuts to public services, and instead invest in Scotland’s people. With more Green MSPs we can support action to deliver thousands of jobs in clean, green industries. We can do business differently, supporting small businesses, social enterprises and employee-owned ventures to flourish. And we can build an economy for people, not growth at any cost.
