The Reports

In-depth documentaries that identify and suggest solutions to the challenges
facing the manufacturing sector.  


The second in our series of six programmes looks at the challenge facing SME manufacturers to decarbonise their businesses. At a national level the UK has some enormous investment decisions to make and it’s by no means certain those decisions will be made and executed in time to preserve vital parts of our industry, such as steel.
How should SMEs respond? Press on or hold back?
Press on!!!

The first in our series of six programmes presented by Nick Peters and Jonny Williamson examines the argument for a proper industrial strategy for the UK. What does that look like? Should manufacturers push government harder to create stability and long-term confidence?
