Future Humber, a newly formed regional promotion organisation, has unveiled the Humber 2030 Vision for a green and prosperous future at the Innovation Zero Congress, UK’s largest low and zero-carbon solutions event. The vision includes a portfolio of decarbonisation projects worth potentially £15 billion in the UK’s Energy Estuary. Key projects include Humber Zero, H2H Saltend, and Gigastack, which aim to create the UK’s first low-carbon industrial cluster in the Humber by 2030, generating substantial investments and creating tens of thousands of jobs.
Future Humber, alongside partners such as RWE, Phillips 66, Drax, and SSE Thermal, created the ‘Humber Pavilion’ to showcase these ambitious projects. The pavilion hosted nine separate stands, each representing a project under the Humber 2030 Vision, attracting thousands of visitors during the event.
Future Humber was recently repositioned from Marketing Humber with a new strategic focus and an expanded Board of Directors, aiming to strengthen its influence across all sectors nationally and internationally. Future Humber, with its robust network of Bondholders, is working to unite the region and share its green vision with influential decision-makers.
Dr Diana Taylor, Managing Director of Future Humber, expressed the region’s ambitious decarbonisation goals and the potential of Humber 2030 Vision to lead the UK’s green economic recovery. Henri Murison, Chief Executive of The Northern Powerhouse Partnership and a member of the new Future Humber Board of Directors, also voiced his support at the congress, emphasising the need for collaboration over competition to achieve a green future.
Furthermore, Future Humber has revamped and relaunched the Invest Humber website, designed to inspire high-level investors and key decision-makers. The site features comprehensive information about the region and its projects, intending to draw further investment towards achieving its 2030 Vision.
