We should always aim to source materials and workforces locally. Government should take the lead on this. When we are thinking about costs we can't just look for the cheapest option when this will cost the planet in terms of carbon emissions. The way our economy has moved towards relying on an overseas workforce (paid poverty wages)rather paying local workers a decent wage to do the work is morally bankrupt and is driving increases in climate emissions.
The idea of Community Wealth Building could be useful here.
Why the contribution is important
It is important that we replace our globalised economy with a localised, circular one which will hugely reduce carbon emissions from transport
