Sustainability Line Walk

Manufacturing plays a critical role in the journey towards sustainability and net zero decarbonisation, but identifying the challenges and solutions can be a daunting task for businesses.  The Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) has a range of sustainability services to help manufacturers identify sustainability improvements in their business.

Free Sustainability Line Walk

The MTC offers manufacturers nationwide a complimentary Sustainability Line Walk to explore how their business could make sustainability improvements, as well as identifying energy and cost-saving opportunities. The line walk is subject to a prior virtual assessment with an MTC expert.

The review will look at a number of key areas including:


Further collaboration

Depending on the project requirements clients may wish to work with the MTC  to embed these sustainability improvements across their business.  If you are an SME with less than 250 employees, the MTC can help provide access to up to 60% funding through Innovate UK’s REACH SME grant scheme.

Further programmes of support include:

  • Sustainability road mapping
  • Sustainability discovery
  • Emissions calculator
  • IoT data acquisition
  • Supplier capability and resilience assessment
  • Productivity improvements
