Forging a reputation for itself as the hotbed of the net zero energy revolution in the UK, the North East is pushing the green agenda and it is testament to our Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen that net zero, and all of the benefits that come with it, will again be championed at the upcoming Global Investment Summit in London tomorrow.

With the likes of Boris Johnson, Bill Gates and JP Morgan’s CEO Jamie Dimon set to be in attendance at the one-day event, Ben Houchen will be using this global platform to really fly the flag for the North East. With Tulway playing their own small part in boosting employment and the economy in the region, the sky really is the limit for the likes of Middlesbrough, Stockton-On-Tees, Hartlepool and Redcar.

We all want to see more well-paid jobs and multi-million-pound businesses investing in the North East, and with sustainability now at the top of the agenda, now is the perfect time to combine all three to not only ensure a prosperous future for our communities… but also a healthier and greener one.

UK green projects have already benefited from more than £5.8 billion pounds in foreign investment since the launch of the Prime Minister’s Ten Point Plan – which has included electrical vehicle manufacturing 40 minutes up the road in Sunderland, hydrogen facilities in Teesside and offshore wind jobs in neighbouring Northumberland, Yorkshire and Humber.

Tomorrow is just the catalyst to continue rubber-stamping the North East on the map and Tulway is eager to see the green industrial revolution continue, with Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen leading the charge.

As an approved supplier to National Grid, Tulway will help pave the way in converting our natural gas transmission network over to Hydrogen.
