Sustainability at Manufacturing and Engineering Week


Our festival of Industrial Innovation celebrates the best in UK manufacturing and engineering excellence and innovation. As you may be aware, the manufacturing sector is coming under increasing external pressure to achieve sustainability goals. 

This event includes a number of co-located events that cover every stage of the product lifecycle, including design, engineering, manufacturing, and maintenance. Topical insights on the circular economy, reaching net zero, and other hot topics will also be covered.

We have teamed up with ForestNation in order to help make this event carbon neutral.
