One Shared Vision story theme: Business and Innovation

We’ve jumped forward to the year 2030. The Bath and North East Somerset area is now well known as a place of cutting-edge innovation, creativity and design. The two universities and further education college have been leading the way nationally to develop skills needed in business and carrying out research that is enabling a step change towards the national carbon targets. Several products invented in Bath and North East Somerset have revolutionised how we live sustainable lives. We have products carrying the BathNES name across the business sector, including in the digital sector, transport technologies and the building materials sector.

Invention is not limited to the city, new business models are being trialed in the countryside for small scale sustainable food production. Agroecology is a widespread farming practice and woodland management provides a good wood source that is used by local manufacturers to make products that were previously made from plastic.
