On Thursday 17 March from 9.30am to 11am we launched the Aldersgate Group’s latest policy briefing, The Missing Link: Establishing Strong UK Supply Chains for Low Carbon Industrial Products. This important discussion featured an expert panel discussing how the UK can deliver efficient low carbon industrial supply chains.

Our latest policy briefing, The Missing Link, continues the Aldersgate Group’s work in the heavy industrial sectors, putting forward a set of recommendations to create a business environment that accelerates investment in industrial decarbonisation, drives innovation, and enhances competitiveness.

This new publication presents tangible solutions based on extensive engagement with major organisations across industry and manufacturing to establish stronger, greener industrial supply chains in a way that delivers emissions reductions, job creation and economic resilience.

The publication comes at a critical moment, with the gas price crisis and shortages of key raw materials driven by geopolitical crises demonstrating the vital importance of maintaining resilient supply chains and a strong industrial base.

Following an introduction from our event chair Nick Molho, Executive Director at the Aldersgate Group, an expert panel from across industry provided their perspective on the briefing’s recommendations and their key priorities for government.
