“The natural strengths and strengths of Solent’s unrivaled business sector are already being harnessed to reduce carbon emissions in key business areas; and the local authorities of the Solent are committed to implementing new approaches to adaptation and mitigation of climate change.

“We created the Solent Net Zero Commission, with representatives from the private, public and academic community, to work collectively to turn this framework into an exciting reality. Achieving Net Zero will require all of us to pull in the same direction, harnessing the determination and ambition that we have here in the Solent.

“Our new Solent 2050 economic strategy provides a comprehensive framework for pioneering approaches to climate change, adaptation and decarbonization and, working with partners across our region, the ten point plan for greener reconstruction in the Solent will detail how our collective ambitions for strong clean growth will be achieved.

The 10-point Green Plan for greener reconstruction in the Solent is based on the ambitions of Solent Freeport with a focus on clean growth, green skills and jobs, as well as broader activities that will support Solent coastal communities and complement the national upgrading program.

Solent LEP’s developing ten-point green plan was launched to Solent businesses and industry representatives at Venturefest South, as part of Maritime UK Solent’s Navigating to Net Zero summit.
