What is Humber Zero

An industry-led project to remove over 40/MT CO2 per annum from the wider Humber by 2040, protect local jobs and support the Humber's economy.

Humber Zero is a plan to reduce carbon emissions and create a low carbon future for the Humber’s industry.

Humber Zero is a cluster of energy-intensive industries that lie 1km from the coastline on the south bank of the Humber river. Close to offshore  gas storage fields and sitting along a key pipeline route identified by National Grid to connect and decarbonise other key industry in the southern Humber; it is an ideal gateway project for large-scale decarbonisation in the wider Humber region. The UK has committed to reducing carbon emissions to net zero by 2050. This can only be achieved by decarbonising existing industry effectively. Energy intensive industries account for over 20% of the Humber’s economy and 1 in 10 jobs. Humber Zero is a plan with immediate impact for reduced emissions, whilst preserving jobs in these critical industries and maintaining the Humber’s role as an industrial hub.
