Relies on Intellectual property rights (IPR) as its foundation stone. We have witnessed a huge increase in green innovation in the last 10 years in so many environments:
The workplace;
Our educational establishments;
The travel industry; and Energy.

Green tech patent applications are quite simply booming, increasing some 170% in the last decade. British inventions and patents have tripled over the same period particularly in:
Solar energy;
