UK manufacturers are facing unprecedented pressure to change to more sustainable methods of manufacturing. 

As UK government pursues net zero carbon by 2050 and responsibility for waste begins to move from consumer to supplier, legislation is rapidly changing to meet the expectations of an increasingly aware global population.

There is an emerging view that this is the fifth industrial revolution. A revolution led by a drive for greater social responsibility and government legislation.

Join us to hear a range of views including HM Government, GKN, Factorylux, Textile Centre of Excellence and High Value Manufacturing Catapult.
