Future Viability Webinar

Steeling for a sustainable future: How could the UK steel industry compete through supply chain?

12:00-13:00 Thursday 6th May 2021

We are pleased to announce the launch of the report ‘Steeling for a sustainable future: How could the UK steel industry compete through supply chain?’. The report is a collaboration between Supply Chain Research Group (SCRG), Advanced Steel Research Centre (ASRC), WMG at the University of Warwick and industrial partners.

A sustainable UK steel industry is important to the future growth of the UK. As we are in a transition towards the low carbon economy, it is inevitable that the steel industry will move to a scrap-based model, which enables us to fully utilised recyclable materials than mine from the ground. This provides a great opportunity for UK steel manufacturers to rethink how they could gain a competitive advantage through technology and supply chain innovation.

This webinar will present an overview of key findings in the report, including:

  • Current landscape of the UK steel industry
  • Assessing the current scrap steel supply chain to identify issues
  • Strategies and enablers to build a sustainable supply chain

Following the presentation, there will be an interactive panel discussion on the key findings.
