Enabling skills for the industrial decarbonisation supply chain

November 2022

A skilled workforce is critical to delivering the ambitious UK Industrial Decarbonisation Strategy and unlocking the value the transition to a net zero economy will bring. The United Kingdom’s historical contribution, both positive and negative, to industrial revolution within and outside its borders cannot be ignored. As the pioneer of industrialisation, the UK has, through time, made a disproportionate contribution to the accumulation of greenhouse gasses, it is thus fitting to commit to investing in people, innovation, technologies, and infrastructure to meet not only its domestic decarbonisation goals, but also to play a leading part globally.
