The Hull and East Yorkshire LEP (HEY LEP) and membership organisation, CATCH, have come together with eight private sector partners across the Humber area to collaborate on developing a roadmap to decarbonise industry across the region by 2040 – the Humber Industrial Cluster Plan (HICP).

The Humber emits more CO2 than any other industrial cluster (30% more than the next largest), whilst the area is one of the most vulnerable to climate change through flood risk.  A quarter of the Humber’s economic output (GVA) and 1 in 10 jobs depend on these industries, making safeguarding their competitiveness important for the local economy – as well as strategically important for the UK.

The project is led by the HEY LEP and CATCH, and is co-funded by the UK’s innovation agency, Innovate UK, and the eight private sector partners, British Steel, Centrica, Drax, Equinor, National Grid, Phillips 66, SSE and VPI.

 

 

The £2.6M project will deliver a Cluster Plan which is informed by the ongoing work on industry-led decarbonisation investments (such as Humber Zero and Zero Carbon Humber), and will therefore have access to world-class industrial expertise to demonstrate how decarbonisation can be achieved whilst also ensuring the local economy continues to thrive. The plan will provide a blueprint for clean growth to drive a green recovery in the Humber.
