Viscount Waverley

asked Her Majesty's Government:

In the light of the global market for environment technology and services, whether they will appoint a dedicated Export Promoter for Environmental Technology and Services to support British exports, in addition to the recent appointment of an Export Promoter focused purely on Energy and Environment.

Lord Sainsbury of Turville

Trade Partners UK has five Export Promoters supporting exports of environmental technology and services in specific markets, as well as the recently appointed EP dedicated to Energy and Environment. Trade Partners UK also works closely with JEMU, the Joint (DTI/DETR) Environmental Markets Unit, dedicated to promoting the UK environment sector in overseas markets.
