Manufacturers report that environmental innovation reduces costs
June 10, 2019 / Jonny Williamson
Manufacturers who put environmental improvements at the heart of their businesses are reaping wide-spread cost-savings, according to a new survey released today which shows industry is stepping up to the sustainability challenge. Make UK’s survey - Manufacturing: stepping up to the sustainability challenge - takes the temperature of sustainability progress in manufacturing and shows that despite challenges both at home and abroad, 50% of industrial businesses are making headway with their sustainability programmes. Unsurprisingly, the main drivers towards sustainability remain cost savings. In fact, 71% of those who implemented environmentally friendly processes have seen a reduction in their costs.
