The Green Revolution

“We have to work together collaboratively to achieve such a massive shift in our behaviour, on energy use, consumption and waste.”

The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.”


The Climate Change Revolution

“The Sun collaborates with the soil to bring plants and flowers to life. We should learn from nature and collaborate more. The North West has great initiatives like HyNet, one of UKGOV’s first two Hydrogen projects.”


The Net Zero Revolution

 “The North West region is a region driving and leading change towards Net Zero and carbon reduction. Its location is ‘investor ready’ for the key technologies needed and can deliver tangible growth, employment opportunities and economic regeneration.”
