Delivering the low-carbon economy
A report launched with EEF focused on opportunities in the low-carbon economy
Message from Jane Lodge, Partner, Deloitte.
"Creating a low-carbon economy in the UK has become an important priority for Government, business and investors alike. As the effects of climate change become more apparent, cutting carbon emissions - the key cause of climate change - has become a core focus for many businesses, but particularly manufacturing.
However, cutting carbon does not have to stifle economic development. Tackling climate change will not necessarily require businesses to rein in their operations and lose market share or competitive advantage. Instead, the low-carbon economy offers significant opportunities that manufacturing particularly cannot afford to ignore.
Deloitte UK Manufacturing Group and EEF, the manufacturers’ organisation, have collaborated to explore the opportunities and examine what developments are currently being made by UK manufacturers in a new report from EEF - Delivering the low-carbon economy: business opportunities for UK manufacturers.
Together with the report, please access the pod cast recording which discusses both the findings of the research and the opportunities for UK manufacturing.
The message is clear - the low-carbon economy is fast becoming a reality. Forward looking businesses that act now have exciting opportunities ahead. Embracing the low-carbon economy now could secure both the long term economic and environmental future of the UK. We do hope you can join us to discuss this new report."
