Green Growth

We are surrounded by areas of outstanding natural beauty and we are serious about our commitment to tackle climate change. That is why our bid is unique and different. We:

  • Have built in our commitment to growing a green and sustainable city, to decarbonising marine manufacturing and to reducing the carbon impact of local commuting.
  • Will encourage short sea shipping routes using smaller vessels that are more likely to decarbonise in the near future to reduce carbon heavy road haulage.
  • Will utilise our existing port capacity to reduce our overall carbon footprint, e.g. we will look to import engines for Princess Yachts directly into the region.
  • Will focus our innovation activity on clean propulsion and we will aim to attract marine engine manufacturers.
  • Will support Princess Yachts, Babcock and other clean propulsion R&D efforts.
