Why join us?

The climate clock is ticking and the world around us is rapidly changing. Life will look radically different for us all within the next decade; from the products we use every day to how we travel.

Central to enabling this change is manufacturing. What we manufacture and how we manufacture needs to keep pace with changes across society and we, the manufacturing community, must step up and accelerate this activity to make a fundamental difference to the world’s fight against the climate emergency.
