Join us on 20 June at Hardwick Hall for our next Clean Growth conference!

About the event

The UK and individual clusters all have their roadmaps to achieving Net Zero, where the Teesside cluster is well placed to lead the way. NEPIC’s annual Clean Growth Conference allows industry and stakeholders in the North East and further afield to commune and discuss their decarbonisation challenges and opportunities. The shift to Net Zero is a huge challenge for all industries, fortunately it also provides opportunity for the advancement of businesses and economies through the creation of jobs, new supply chains, and regional investment.

As always, the line-up for the 2023 Clean Growth Conference will be diverse and will bring together stakeholders to discuss a range of decarbonisation challenges and opportunities for the process industries. The event will give an overview of the landscape with speaker presentations, panel discussions, exhibitors, and case studies from those prevalent in the industry.  

This will be an engaging and informative event whether you are a SME looking to understand how Net Zero can grow your business, or a manufacturer looking for industrial decarbonisation case studies and opportunities for future innovation.

Competition Law Statement

Trade association meetings have, in the past, been used as a forum for the establishment of cartels and they are therefore the subject of scrutiny by the UK Competition and Markets Authority.

For the purposes of remaining compliant with competition law, members should not discuss commercially sensitive strategic information (including but not limited to, details of proposed or actual pricing, information about target or key customers or expansion plans) in or around NEPIC meetings, including at unofficial get-togethers or over coffee/lunch.
