Net Zero North West

Net Zero North West is an industry-led cluster acting as a public and private sector investment accelerator for industrial decarbonisation and clean growth projects in the North West. We unite business, regional leaders and academia, and are committed to delivering a co-ordinated net zero vision for the region.

As the region with the largest concentration of advanced manufacturing and chemical production in the UK – currently producing around 40 million tonnes of CO2 annually – we have a core mission to become the UK’s first low carbon industrial cluster by 2030 and world’s first net zero industrial cluster by 2040.

Our Economic Investment Prospectus showcases the North West as the UK’s leading region for green and sustainable investment. Setting out a £206bn investment case for a pipeline of long-term and shovel ready green investment projects, the prospectus demonstrates how the North West can lead the green industrial revolution and create the UK’s first net zero region by 2040.

This bold vision for the North West will save 38.5 mega-tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions, turbocharge the UK economy by £285bn GVA and safeguard or create over 660,000 jobs.
