About Us

Oxfordshire Greentech is a business network supporting the growth of the low-carbon sector in Oxfordshire. We bring together businesses and organisations to encourage innovation, collaboration and knowledge transfer, to facilitate the transition towards a sustainable, low carbon future in Oxfordshire and the world.

Oxfordshire Greentech started as part of the OxFutures programme, which was a £3.2m project to boost low carbon economic development in Oxfordshire. It was supported by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and run through a collaborative partnership between the Low Carbon Hub, Cherwell District Council, Bioregional, Oxford City Council, the University of Oxford, and Oxford Brookes University. For more information please see here.

Oxfordshire Greentech is now out of the programme and is a separate entity – we’ve been flourishing as our own network since March 2020!

Our Aims

  • Create jobs and economic growth by promoting Oxfordshire as a centre for low-carbon solutions.
  • Support local organisations to develop services and products that enable low-carbon, resilient lifestyles.
  • Facilitate cross-sector collaborations through a forum for innovation and partnership-working.
  • Provide a platform for our members to showcase how they are creating a low-carbon, sustainable world

What we do

Our goal is to make Oxfordshire Greentech a nodal centre for innovation in the low carbon sector, through:

  • Creating a platform for research and innovation: We believe that by bringing people and organisations together, we can enable collaborative funding bids and practical problem solving
  • Facilitating networking and collaborations: We provide an exciting forum for networking with other key players and organisations in the low-carbon sector in Oxfordshire, through peer-to-peer introductions, workshops and events.
  • Inspire and showcase – Using the One Planet Living framework, we can help organisations develop their own strategies and action plans towards reducing their environmental impact
  • Increase the visibility of the low carbon sector in Oxfordshire – We represent the low carbon sector across Oxfordshire and work hard to celebrate and show its impact and strength
