Interest and investment in sustainable manufacturing is on the rise, which is why we believe it presents significant innovation opportunities over the years to come.
What is meant by sustainable manufacturing?
Sustainable manufacturing minimises negative environmental impacts while conserving energy and natural resources. Indeed, sustainable manufacturing considerations are moving up the agenda thanks to increasing scrutiny to report on supply chains and direct environmental impacts.
We take sustainable manufacturing to include materials sustainability, sustainable construction, high-performance materials, functional coatings and sustainable chemical production. Innovations in sustainable manufacturing are influencing manufacturing methods, materials and processes at companies across the globe. From energy, automotive sectors and aerospace engineering, to chemicals, transportation and logistics, firms are innovating to reduce their impacts and make their products and services more attractive to both B2B and B2C customers.
