81 megatons of the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions are generated by manufacturing each year. Beyond this, much of modern life depends on manufactured goods which generate their own emissions when used. We enable the innovations in technologies, techniques, materials and energy that can have a big impact on reaching net zero.
Slashing manufacturing emissions
Whether by data-driven productivity improvements or by developing new techniques or materials, we are enabling hundreds of companies to drive down their emissions each year. We are also leading regional initiatives to decarbonise industry that will lead the way to a much greener UK manufacturing community.
Enabling low carbon energy
Green energy is the foundation of net zero, powering our lives and the economy while protecting the environment. We are driving emissions down by helping the country embrace nuclear, hydrogen and renewable energy.
Developing new sustainable materials
Moving away from oil-based plastics and non-recyclable materials is crucial to humanity’s environmental impact. We are supporting the development of novel bioplastics and sustainable composites that can be recycled and reused for a more sustainable circular economy.
Transport is the single biggest source of UK territorial carbon emissions. We are helping to change this by both cutting emissions from conventional vehicles and driving net zero transport solutions forwards in road, rail, air and sea travel.
