Manufacturing Mondays
Manufacturing Mondays
It may be a short working week ahead however the wheels remain in motion across UK manufacturing so there’s plenty to going on across the sector.
Inflationary pressures and energy costs remain in the news particularly following Rishi Sunak’s latest intervention.
Full details of Rishi Sunak’s announcement can be found here along with brief analysis from the BBC. Make UK will continue to call for greater support for business and incentives that encourage investment, particularly around the subject of net-zero and increasing productivity.
Speaking of net-zero and energy costs have you completed Make UK Decarbonising Manufacturing survey?
Happy Monday!

First roadmap to net zero released
Make UK and Inspired Energy release the final report of their step-by-step roadmap taking companies through their complex decarbonisation journey.
This Roadmap provides a clear direction and major milestones towards the long term 2050 goal. It aims to encourage companies to take those first successful steps towards reducing their carbon footprint.
The plan reflects the targets set to date by the Government and by other industry sub-sectors, planting the major milestones in the ground to ensure businesses stay on track and pick up the pace required for the complex journey to the decarbonisation of factory production processes and energy consumption.
What are we hoping to achieve?
  • Make UK has committed to help its members achieve net zero by 2050. On the pathway to net zero, the manufacturing industry will achieve a 67% reduction in Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2035.
  • Make UK and the manufacturing industry are also committed to engaging with Government and other stakeholders to create the right business and regulatory environment for the manufacturing industry to become net zero, supporting suppliers and customers to go net zero and developing net zero products. They also commit to supporting the establishment of 4 low-carbon clusters, 1 zero carbon cluster by 2040 and several mini, dispersed low-carbon clusters. 
There are six key areas in which the manufacturing industry will play a major role in enabling the UK to achieve its 2050 net zero target: 
⚙️ resource efficiency
🚌 transport
🌱 low-carbon energy
🏗️ built environment
⛓️ greening supply chains
🗹 product standards 
Out in the field is Make UK’s Decarbonising Manufacturing survey. which is looking to gather the latest data around how manufacturers have started their decarbonising journey and plans over the next 12 months.
With only 4 multiple choice questions, it’s short and sweet so please complete here- Decarbonising Manufacturing survey
Keep an eye out for the results in early July! 👀
Psst..Make UK encourages collaboration between its members and across the manufacturing sector. It will continue to support initiatives that help facilitate progress towards net zero, for example the Inspired Energy ‘My Net Zero Toolkit’ which helps manufacturers track and disclose their emissions and establish a plan to reduce them. Cool, right?

Save the date
Last Friday we shared on our webinar top tips on activities you can plan, heard from a Manufacturer on their plans and how the Careers & Enterprise Company can support you to inspire the next generation in your local area.
Now the main event… National Manufacturing Day
Save the date and join us on Thursday 7 July 2022!
Local communities will have the chance to see the potential careers and jobs on offer within our wonderfully diverse manufacturing sector – there are career opportunities for school leavers, graduates and people looking to reskill at all levels. Make UK is working with the Government and details of the companies taking part in National Manufacturing Day will be circulated to every job centre across the UK and into all of our schools.
Together, we will be able to demonstrate the value of a manufacturing apprenticeship as an alternative route post school/college. National Manufacturing Day will be a celebration of all of our sub sectors including automotive, food and drink, aerospace, defence, chemical and pharma.
