For our Zero Carbon Event, the plan is for employers to deliver a series of talks to groups of students, studying Engineering, Chemistry, Physics, Biology and Geography.
The focus of this event is as follows: The Humber region is home to a large number of industries, supplying everyday goods from petrol to construction materials, metals and plastics, chemicals and food to name but a few. The Humber employs large numbers of people in these sectors, with around 60,000 people employed in manufacturing alone. It is the largest industrial hub in the UK and emits more CO2 than any other UK industrial cluster – up to 50 per cent more than the next largest.
By decarbonising, Humber industry will be able to remain competitive with other similar industries around the world who have also embraced decarbonisation. As a result it will continue to thrive, supporting tens of thousands of jobs in the region. (Humberzero)
