The push for net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 is the defining challenge of the times and - whilst all sectors have a role to play - manufacturing will be at the heart of delivering this transition: through both the production and development of new and emerging technology and through the deployment of low carbon solutions and processes within its own operations
In this online panel session held in partnership with the High Value Manufacturing Catapult (the first in a series of three) The Engineer will bring together a panel of experts from across the UK manufacturing landscape to highlight and champion the role that manufacturers are playing in the push for net zero; examine some of the opportunities created; explore some of the challenges that manufacturers face as they decarbonise their own operations; and – through best practice examples – consider some of the solutions to these challenges.

Key discussion areas:
• Zero carbon opportunities
• Scaling up for emerging sectors
• Deploying sustainable production technologies
• Driving sustainability through the supply chain
