Manufacturing sustainability: Back to the future

 

In a 2013 UK Government Foresight report on the future of UK manufacturing, a team of leading experts made predictions on what a more sustainable future manufacturing sector would look like.

 

Professor Steve Evans was part of the team that wrote the original Foresight report which looked out to 2050. The report predicted future changes to the industrial system, focusing on those aspects that would affect, or be impacted by, sustainability.

 

But seven years on, what has changed?

 

This webinar covers:

  • Reflections on the 2013 Foresight report predictions for UK manufacturing
  • Where are we on the journey to becoming more sustainable?
  • A look ahead: what are the future opportunities and challenges
