The Green Port Hull vision is to establish Hull and the Humber region as a world class centre for renewable energy, creating wealth and employment for the region.
The Green Port Growth Programme is administered by East Riding of Yorkshire Council and Hull City Council. With an investment of over £25.7million, the programme, which is supported by the Government’s Regional Growth Fund, is designed to capitalise on renewables opportunities and to develop indigenous business growth within the renewables sector. The project is providing continual support to help local businesses recognise and embrace these potential opportunities and we are pleased we are able to support this initiative.
