Cluster mapping report: Northwest industrial cluster

This report provides a brief summary of the North West Industrial Cluster, accounting for the unique configurations of industries, geographies, historical and environmental factors. The purpose of this report is to set out the broader context for building a social licence to operate (SLO) for the region’s industrial decarbonisation, as a resource for stakeholders across academic, industrial, NGO and policy communities. It should be seen as a ‘living document’ which will be reviewed and updated over the course of the project, informed by a series of deliberative workshops with stakeholders and citizens from across the region.
