Clean Growth

Union Hall

The move to cleaner economic growth – through low carbon technologies and the efficient use of resources – is one of the greatest industrial opportunities of our time. By one estimate, the UK’s clean economy could grow at four times the rate of GDP. Whole new industries will be created and existing industries transformed as we move towards a low carbon, more resource-efficient economy.

The UK has been at the forefront of encouraging the world to move towards clean growth. Meet the Oxfordshire companies who are determined to play a leading role in providing the technologies, innovations, goods and services of this future.
