Post-pandemic recovery plan published by CRC

28 April 2021

Formation of the Covid Recovery Commission (CRC) has resulted in the publishing of a plan for greater collaboration between government and business to assist the UK's recovery.

It urges the "resetting" of the relationship between the business sector and government, according to the BBC report.

Improved links between business and government is additionally expected to have positive connotations for the FM sector, as its focus turns to the reopening of facilities around the UK.

The CRC is also calling for the creation of a minimum of one new globally-competitive industry hub in every area of the UK by 2030.

An overhaul of the Apprenticeship Levy is also advised, including establishing a lifelong £10,000 training allowance for all those over the age of 25.

Another important element of the recovery plan is the creation of a detailed plan to assist the decarbonisation of homes over the next 15 years to assist the UK in meeting its net zero carbon emissions pledge by 2050.

Further aims of the post-pandemic recovery plan include providing more support to UK suppliers and tackling social inequality.

The CRC consists of 10 executives from major brands including Tesco, Vodafone and Astra Zeneca.

In addition to the measures above, the commission is also urging the UK to asses its business strengths and weaknesses.

While continuing to support the strongest elements, support should also be provided to assist workers in migrating to sectors with a more promising future, said the CRC.

According to the BBC, the government has said it remains committed to a new partnership with business to "build back better" to assist the UK in recovering from the impact of the pandemic.
