The North East Scotland Green Freeport, encompassing Aberdeen City and Peterhead, aims to deliver growth and regeneration in the North East of Scotland and transform the region into a global leader of sustainable energy and innovation. A Green Freeport for North East Scotland will accelerate Scotland’s ambition of achieving Net Zero by 2045. It will secure vital trade and support the acceleration of innovation, diversification and decarbonisation of the region's key sectors and deliver a £8.5 billion GVA boost, ushering in a new era of investment, innovation, regional regeneration and opportunities for those that need them most.
Up to 32,000 high-quality jobs will be created in the North East of Scotland under ground-breaking plans to transform the region into the 'Net Zero Capital of Europe'.
As a region, our ambition is to spearhead Scotland’s transition to Net Zero, generate new trade and investment, promote regeneration, and create sustainable jobs and opportunities for those who need them most.
North East Scotland Green Freeport is a collaborative venture led by Port of Aberdeen, Aberdeen International Airport, Peterhead Port Authority, Aberdeen City Council, Aberdeenshire Council, and supported by regional stakeholders, private sector organisations and academia.
