Watch session

The UK's 4th Industrial Revolution is underway. The national net zero strategy is a critical opportunity to 'level up', to invest in the decarbonisation of our industrial heartlands and create vibrant, local economies based on low carbon manufacturing and industry with high-value, long term job prospects. First-mover regions have made good headway with clear roadmaps to bring industrial sectors to net zero and build clusters of clean industry and manufacturing that create growth opportunities locally and internationally. This interactive session will bring together representatives from UK's industrial clusters to discuss future growth opportunities and how regional low carbon industries can strengthen the UK's international standing in the global green economy.
