As the UK works towards the ambitious targets to reach net-zero emissions between 2045 - 2050, the need for more sustainable manufacturing processes has never been greater.
At NMIS, we help manufacturers of all sizes, and from all sectors, seize the opportunity to realise their net-zero ambitions by making it easier to develop and embrace new technologies while de-risking innovation, and supporting them in their efforts to transition to a low carbon economy.
Our sustainability themes are designed to serve as rallying points for collaborations through research and development that will support the manufacturing community to address climate challenges across industry and wider society.
Transport plays a critical role in achieving net-zero targets. Recognised as Scotland’s largest contributor of greenhouse gas emissions, fundamental changes are emerging across various industries including manufacturing.
How we support:
A key focus of industrial sustainability, the circular economy encourages us all to look at how products can be designed, manufactured, and repurposed to offer a more continual product life-cycle. The re-engineering of products presents a rich opportunity for the manufacturing sector across Scotland and the wider UK.
What are we doing about it?
Working together with businesses, industry, government, and its agencies to develop and adopt new ways of manufacturing that can support climate action and the nation's drive towards net-zero.
How are we involved?
The NMIS Group is working towards implementing sustainable business practices and improving resource efficiency with the aim of reducing both costs and waste.
