Boosting low carbon economic development in Oxfordshire

The OxFutures programme is now closed. Having run from 2017 to 2023, it leaves behind a substantial legacy of transformative innovation and energy efficiency accomplishments across Oxfordshire.

The world is waking up to our climate emergency – and casting around for the right response. The truth is the only solution is working together. Using all our skills, knowledge, and resources in concert, to create a different future.

In Oxfordshire we’re showing the world how it’s done. Making the most of our unique local assets.  Creating a real vision of the future, an example to follow.

The OxFutures partnership sparked a revolution in our region’s economy – business, citizens, politics and academia, together driving a pioneering transformation.

Thousands of pounds – and tonnes of carbon – were saved by local businesses. Innovations were backed and relationships were brokered. Tens of millions of pounds of new investment were secured.

From a thriving Greentech network, to projects harnessing AI and the take-off of electric vehicles, we created an engine of ambitious zero-carbon innovation, and a legacy that transformed our region. This is OxFutures. Our local vision – our global future.
