How Product Standards Can Grow The Market For Low Carbon Industrial Products

This new report with Frontier Economics outlines how the introduction of mandatory product standards can strengthen the UK’s industrial sectors and accelerate their decarbonisation, which presents a major opportunity to create jobs and prosperity across the UK economy.

Crucially, these standards would help to support the competitiveness of UK industry, by preventing cheap, high carbon imports from undermining goods produced in the UK.
