Local sustainable, clean and inclusive economic growth, prosperity and low-carbon green recovery are key priorities for the government and devolved nations.

NERC’s investments support these aims, delivering impact for all parts of the UK. In addition, our investments develop clusters of regional capacity across the country, contributing to local economic growth and job creation.

In this way we spread prosperity, levelling up the UK economy and unlocking environmentally sustainable investment, including in key sectors such as energy and space.
