The role of sustainability in business


The Manufacturer’s Sustainable Manufacturing Summit will take place online on 18th June looking the role of sustainability in their businesses. This year’s summit will be chaired by KTN’s head of manufacturing, Ben Peace.


The Sustainable Manufacturing Summit is a virtual gathering of manufacturing professionals – 150+ sustainability-minded executives from the UK’s largest automotive, aerospace, defence, electronics, pharma, food and electronics manufacturers, coming together to talk about the role of sustainability in their businesses.


Manufacturers in the UK are aware of the benefits that a sustainable manufacturing strategy can bring. This could include increased operational efficiency, reduction in costs and waste, reduced carbon footprint, reputation strengthening and public trust. However, there is confusion over how best to incorporate it into existing products and processes.


Similarly, embracing the circular economy by designing products in a smarter way using reusable and recyclable environmentally friendly materials so that each product at end of life becomes a new resource is becoming a priority in establishing a sustainable way ahead.


Through virtual keynotes and discussion rooms, the Sustainable Manufacturing Summit brings together CEOs, CTOs and Heads of Sustainability, Corporate Social Responsibility, Operations, Manufacturing, Engineering & Production.
