Working in partnership with Make UK

Championing British manufacturing.

Make UK creates a supportive environment for UK manufacturers to thrive, innovate and compete.

Inspired works in partnership with Make UK to support their members with their energy, sustainability and ESG requirements

Driving innovation for British manufacturers  

Manufacturers face many pressures as one of the most energy-intensive sectors. Throughout the supply chain and operational processes, manufacturers are looking for ways to reduce costs and lower their Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions to meet industry standards and the UK’s net-zero goal. 

Around 90% of emissions from the manufacturing and construction industry come from manufacturing activity, with over 85% of these produced by fuel combustion. It’s essential for us to find ways to support manufacturers in reducing these emissions, and our partnership with Make UK strengthens our ability to help them reach net zero manufacturing. 

Inspired is proud to work with Make UK as one of the most recognised industry bodies within the manufacturing sector, as we continue to provide guidance, support, and solutions to members.

Manufacturing Net-zero Roadmap

We have worked closely with Make UK to create a manufacturing-specific Net-zero Roadmap, designed to guide businesses through their complex decarbonisation journey.

The roadmap has been developed in consultation with some of the major manufacturing sub-sectors and offers clear direction and highlights the major milestones required to reach the UK’s 2050 net-zero goal.

It aims to encourage manufacturing businesses to take the first successful steps towards reducing their carbon footprint.

Make UK: My Net-Zero Toolkit

The ‘My Net-Zero Toolkit’ provides guidance for UK manufacturers to achieve net zero by 2050 (or earlier if possible) and help respond to the imperative of climate action.

The toolkit is intended to enable all Make UK members, wherever they are on their net zero journeys, to understand that it is possible to plan their future business in a climate-responsible manner, and that they will reap the benefits of this strategy.

My Net-Zero Toolkit’ includes information on:

  • Carbon Footprinting
  • Site Surveys                                                                         
  • Net-zero Strategy
  • Project Implementation                                                                        
  • Tracking and reporting

Make UK Report mock up: Driving Industrial Energy Efficiencies

Driving Industrial Energy Efficiencies

A guide for manufacturers detailing how energy-efficient practices and technologies can help manufacturers save money and boost productivity as they look to reach net-zero.

This report outlines a two-pronged approach for firms to realise these benefits and opportunities which many have already been using successfully to reduce their energy consumption.

Making it to Net Zero: A Manufacturers’ Guide

With the UK government committing to net-zero by 2050, Make UK has built upon its existing Net Zero Roadmap with this Net Zero Guide to help manufacturers reduce their emissions.

Technology considerations, energy efficiency measures and clear and continuous communication with stakeholders all play a significant role in successfully embedding your business’ net zero strategy. This guide covers all these key steps to help manufacturers start their net zero journey.
