Environmental & Social Value

The British government has mandated that every business must reach net-zero by 2050 or before.
With the manufacturing sector taking on a greater burden of  responsibility for delivering a sustainable and socially responsible economic  future, Made in Britain is committed to  supporting and encouraging all our members to advance their progress on sustainability. 

The Made in Britain Green Growth Assessment provides your business with a benchmark, so you can understand the progress you're  making across  seven pillars of environmental and social value, leading to economic benefit and responsible growth. Modelled on the UN's sustainable development goal 12 (SDG12) and created in partnership with the eMBA programme at Cambridge Judge Business School, it has been designed exclusively for Made in Britain members. 

Why take the assessment?
