At a critical time for the manufacturing sector, this webinar series will provide education, inspiration and insights about the innovative, sustainable opportunities for the industry to understand its carbon footprint, its impact, and how to address it. 

The insights gathered during these webinars will be used to develop a set of recommendations from a cross-section of the industry that can be taken forward to COP26, the UN Climate Change Conference, which is taking place in Glasgow in November. 

Speakers will include senior leaders from some of the UK’s top manufacturers, academic institutions, innovative SMEs and government: 

  • Edward Pegrum, Commercial Partnerships Manager at Raleigh UK
  • Maurits van Tol, Chief Technology Officer at Johnson Matthey
  • Steve Barbour, Managing Director of Composites Braiding
  • Ali Clabburn, Chief Executive Officer of Mobilityways, Liftshare and C-Lab
