Given the importance of manufacturers and heavy industry to the Sheffield region, both in economic and carbon-cutting terms, it is perhaps surprising that we rarely discuss the work they are doing towards a low carbon future.
With that in mind, our primary carbon-cutting speaker is Mark Tomlinson,Operations Director at Sheffield Forgemasters. Few people are better placed to understand, from an insider perspective, the importance of industry cutting carbon and forging a sustainable future for Sheffield.
His speech will be followed by a panel discussion, and audience Q&A. Don't miss your chance to quiz experts from industry, academia and local government,on exactly how a manufacturing region like ours can face up to the challenges of a low carbon future.
