Creative Industries Sector Vision Announced
The UK government has unveiled the Creative Industries Sector Vision which includes £77m of new funding for the sector. It was created in partnership with the Creative Industries Council (CIC) which has, since early 2023, included JB’s Founder and CEO, Alison Tickell as a voice for environmental action in the creative industries.
Alison said of the Vision, “It’s really good to see the commitment in the Sector Vision to climate action as a priority for the Creative Industries Council, and I look forward to making progress on this critical agenda.”
The creative industries have a vital role to play in reducing UK carbon emissions and preserving natural resources, and the Vision’s 2030 environment objective is that creative industries play a growing role in tackling environmental challenges.
