CONVERGENCE

Oxygen House is focused on two primary goals: a carbon-neutral society based on MWs of both renewable energy produced and demand reduced; an overhaul in educational standards through shrewd, patient investment in radical data technology.

CLIMATE CHANGE

Prices of solar and other renewables are decreasing. Consumer popularity is proportionately high. The benefits of Oxygen House’s investments with Low Carbon and other players in the renewable energy market are already being felt: in lower energy bills, greater energy security and fewer stranded in fuel poverty.

good education

Good education means better preparation for environmental, political and economic change. It significantly impacts health, integrity, morality, quality of life and life expectancy. Done properly, the benefits of good education are felt across the social order.

Innovative Partnerships

If we are to ensure lasting sustainability through supply chains, stimulate thought leadership in traditional sectors and influence a wider group of businesses, innovative partnerships with likeminded organisations are required.
