Venture Fest 2014
Cameron will launch a report on the opportunities for low-carbon investment in Oxfordshire at Venture Fest, the annual business creation networking event at the Said Business School.
In January the OxFutures “Action on Energy” event launched plans to raise £400m of clean energy investment into Oxford and Oxfordshire by 2020. Attended by a panel of national leaders and over 200 local leaders, it called for action to make Oxfordshire city-region a low carbon pioneer, by harnessing its unique strengths, local innovation and partnerships.
Building on this momentum, Low Carbon Oxford (LCO) and the University of Oxford’s Environmental Change Institute (ECI) joined forces to produce a report on opportunities for low carbon investment in Oxford and Oxfordshire.
The report, to be launched at Venturefest by Professor Cameron Hepburn, will aim to show how Oxfordshire can develop global leadership in innovation, build resilience, keep and grow existing businesses and attract new businesses, increase jobs, reduce carbon emissions and build inclusive and thriving communities.
