About Us

We can only create a better, healthier, safer future if we have the right people, ideas, technology and resources collaborating to make it happen.

At the Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation, we bring low carbon leaders and practitioners from business, finance and the public sector together to turn good ideas into reality.

Both here in our award winning energy efficient hub – and virtually: across countries, continents and cultures via our networks and contacts.

We join up forward thinkers to accelerate & catalyze large-scale low carbon projects. And we use our network to help companies drive innovation into their supply chains and create new kinds of low carbon products and services.

We collaborate with government, enterprise and academics to help craft smart climate and energy policy.

And we bring our networks together to create face to face and online learning programmes that build the capacity and skills required to succeed in a low carbon future.

 

Within the hub, the ECCI has three clear functions:

Enterprise & Innovation:


Innovation is at the core of all ECCI's activity. We can only create a low carbon future with the right people, ideas, vision, technology and resources to make it happen. ECCI brings governments, businesses, communities and academics together, creating an environment where these groups can take risks on good ideas.
