Be part of the region's future

The world's biggest threat is our region's biggest opportunity.

The Humber is already well established as the UK’s Energy Estuary. Our mission is to build on this and give the Humber a global relevance by working together to develop the region as a demonstrator of a zero carbon economy.

Marketing Humber has partnered with the University of Hull to launch an ambitious campaign ‘The Waterline’.

Our Mission

Grand Challenges

Most people associate climate change with power production and the burning of fossil fuels. Renewables are getting cheaper and many countries are committing to rely more on them and less on fossil fuels for their electricity needs. De-carbonising the way we generate electricity remains a fundamental part of the solution.
