The primary policies needed to support the growth of a low carbon-led economy in the region.

Financing the region’s decarbonisation revolution.

Removing the barriers that have the potential to stand in the way of a high performing decarbonisation-powered economy so that future growth opportunities can be maximised.

Establishing the South-West as the hot bed for environmental technology innovations.

The skills and local supply chains that need to be established to support the progress of decarbonisation and therefore the South West economic fortunes.
