The UK government’s net zero commitment is more than a direction of travel. It is a committed target with no clear strategy to deliver it as of yet. UK FIRES’ (Future Industrial Resource Efficient Strategy) ‘Absolute Zero’ report outlines a road map for UK Industry and Policy to meet these ambitious 2050 emissions targets. It advocates utilising incremental change built on existing technology, forgoing the panacea of new or ‘breakthrough’ technologies with little chance of operation at scale in the next 30 years.

What does this mean for manufacturers, both in terms of the products that we produce, and the materials and processes used to produce them? The government’s commitment provides a chance for UK manufacturers to take a lead on the global stage in resource efficient manufacturing.

We have a great opportunity to energise the next generation of engineers to seek solutions driven by technology and innovation. These must go hand in hand with behavioural change to meet government targets and deliver a brighter future for our planet. Join this webinar to gain an understanding of the implications for industry and society in light of the UK’s commitment to achieve net zero emissions by 2050 – in particular for the manufacturing sector
