Enablers of Transformation in Foundation Industries
12 October 2022 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm
This workshop is a collaboration between Transforming Foundation Industries Network+ and the Leeds University Business School exploring how Foundation Industries can effectively engage with policy makers and embed business models to enable transformation across sectors.
A significant focus has been given to the development and implementation of innovative technologies that will enable decarbonisation of Foundation Industries. However, given the level of maturity and developing of several technologies, it can be argued that there are currently no technological or technical barriers that would significantly reduce the ability of Foundation Industries (cement, metals, plastic, glass, paper) to decarbonise. For a real and sustainable transformation, it is important to consider the intangible organisational barriers and opportunities of such process. Innovation and transformation of the Foundation Industries (FI) will require governance, business and operational models change which can only be achieved with involvement and support of the entire supply chain. Identification of intangible barriers, including end-users perceptions and needs, regulations, standardization and policy, are key to transforming FI to meet the net-zero emissions targets.
Venue: Doubletree by Hilton Leeds City Centre, Granary Wharf, 2 Wharf Approach, Leeds LS1 4BR
