Net Zero Industry Wales is the governing body of Wales’ growing number of industrial clusters (regional) and Clean Growth Hubs (place-based). This includes: South Wales Industrial Cluster (SWIC) and North-East Wales Industrial Decarbonisation Cluster (NEW-ID), as well as established hubs like The Milford Haven Energy Cluster and Deeside Decarbonisation Forum.

Each Cluster’s regional commitment to innovation, collaboration, and responsible industrial practices underscores our wider strategic mission — to achieve a carbon-neutral future for Wales.

Welsh’ Industrial Clusters are at the regional helms of this critical endeavor, where industry and sustainability go hand in hand. Together, they’re paving the way towards a cleaner, more sustainable future for Welsh industry.

Explore the unique approaches and aspirations of each Cluster — and the work of the innovative Clean Growth Hubs they support, below.


South Wales Industrial Cluster

Building on more than a decade’s experience, SWIC is a partnership of cross-sector businesses, from utilities and heavy industry to power generation — geographically located in South Wales. SWIC’s aim is to become a world leading, sustainable Industrial Cluster that supports the societal, economic and energy needs of south Wales.
