Helping Communities Towards Net Zero

Future Isle of Wight has an ambitious goal: To preserve the ecology and environment of our beautiful island for future generations, whilst improving the everyday lives of the people who live and work here.

Preserving the Environment By Improving How We Live

Future Isle of Wight is a community interest company helping local businesses, community groups, and residents reduce their costs and carbon footprints.

Our work covers the built environment and transport electrification. Eventually, we hope to include food, water and waste management projects.

  • We use regenerative, sustainable, and environmentally aware strategies and technologies.
  • We help signpost Islanders towards organisations who can actively reduce their utility costs and CO2 emissions.
  • We offer education and support to help individuals and businesses achieve Net Zero by 2040.
  • As a partner of the DriVe2X project, we’re accelerating the uptake of vehicle electrification through new bi-directional smart charging technologies.
  • Smart Island Live, our future technology expo, features international manufacturers and Innovate UK masterclasses.

What You Should Know About Us

We’re a Community Interest Company

That means we aren’t a charity, but our objectives must benefit the local community. It also means that we’re not aligned with a political party, and all of our profits and capital growth need to be used to benefit the Isle of Wight.

We’re Isle of Wight Focused

We live on the Isle of Wight, and we’re committed to making sure that the beautiful landscapes that we love so much are preserved for future generations.

We also understand the unique challenges that Islanders face, and that many of the solutions that work across the water aren’t always a good fit for our rural communities.

We Believe in Practical, Common Sense Solutions

We span a diverse range of industries and backgrounds, including the built environment, communications, smart technology, IT and digital media.

We’re results-driven, motivated and practical, and we understand the challenges of living and doing business on the Isle of Wight.
