Greening the Industrial Strategy Report

The Greening the Industrial Strategy report evidences the work already underway to deliver on the Industrial Strategy and Grand Challenges.

In this report five Chartered Environmentalists describe how they are implementing elements of the Industrial Strategy in their work with a case study each. These case studies cover reverse auction platforms in the water sector, opportunities for Parish Councils, 3D printing, bio-mediated infrastructure and sustainable manufacturing innovations. Such diverse work showcases the wide-spread impact of the Industrial Strategy, as well as the breadth of expertise being put into practice by Chartered Environmentalists.

The positive contributions Chartered Environmentalists are making and can continue to make in the future are clear, and essential to our futures. The Greening the Industrial Strategy report has been distributed to Ministers at Defra and BEIS.
