British eco-industries eye opportunities overseas
The UK environmental sector is being encouraged to capitalize on its relative maturity by looking markets emerging elsewhere in the world.
The agency's snappily-titled Market opportunities in environmental goods and services, renewable energy, carbon finance and Carbon Abatement Technologies report flags up Australia, Brazil, China, India, South Africa, Turkey and the USA as countries that could be worth a punt.
Andrew Cahn, UKTI chief executive said: "In these tough times it is vital we look for where our expertise is needed and provide support for UK companies to seize these opportunities.
"Importantly, the UKTI report on overseas opportunities for environmental industries shows the global commitment to combating climate change can create jobs and give small businesses the chance to expand.
"Through UKTI, UK businesses can tap into these markets to help address environmental concerns, meet environmental regulations and establish infrastructure facilities."
