SCOTTISH GOVERNMENT & UK GOVERNMENT URGED TO BACK NORTH EAST SCOTLAND GREEN FREEPORT

The North East Scotland Green Freeport bid – led by Port of Aberdeen, Peterhead Port Authority, Aberdeen International Airport,  and Aberdeenshire Council – will see these organisations join forces with private sector companies and academia to drive forward a successful bid.

There is potential to create up to 30,000 high-quality jobs in the North East of Scotland under ground-breaking plans to transform the region into the ‘Net Zero Capital Europe’.

The ambitious proposals will secure vital trade and support the acceleration of innovation, diversification and decarbonisation of the region’s key sectors

Steve Murphy, Chief Operating Officer at Storegga, said:

“The North East Scotland Green Freeport bid is an important element of the collective Scottish and UK push to reach net zero, connecting Acorn’s CO2 capture and permanent storage to emitters in central
Scotland, English Freeports such as Thames and Solent, as well as international customers. It is vital we push hard to get important carbon reduction developments like Acorn online as swiftly as possible."
