Read the full story at The Manufacturer.

Manufacturing is the largest emitting industrial sector in the UK, generating 16% of total greenhouse gas emissions in 2019. If the UK is to meet its target of becoming net zero by 2050, manufacturers have a considerable part to play.

As more and more manufacturing businesses put sustainability at the top of their agenda, the benefits are becoming increasingly clear. Commercially, moving toward greater sustainability can reduce costs and increase profits. But it can also have a positive impact on talent attraction, development and retention – people want to work for a business with a social and environmental conscience. This is a topic Joe Walton, Director at Michael Page Manufacturing, discussed in a recent panel discussion on employee engagement with sustainability issues.

Last month, our Senior Operating Director Ruth Hancock participated in the judging panel for the ‘Sustainable Manufacturing’ category at The Manufacturer’s MX Awards. We sat down with her to learn more about the exciting innovations she saw there.
