Seán Neeson MLA said: “This report would suggest that we need a clear and radical strategy to create jobs particularly for the construction sector.
“We need to see a Green New Deal created for Northern Ireland because we need a coherent strategy that not only creates jobs but also protects our environment.
“There is massive potential in sustainability and a Green New Deal would help role out a home insulation scheme which would create a large number of construction jobs. Renewable energy creation is an area in which we can capitalise on global demand and create jobs. We have excellent potential here in terms of wind and tidal power and we can make Northern Ireland a leading area in terms of sustainability.”
