The Big 2023 Sustainability Survey

The results of Made in Group’s inaugural Big Sustainability Report show that sustainability is an increasingly important boardroom priority for manufacturing decision-makers but companies, SMEs in particular, require guidance and support to accelerate progress. Initial steps already taken by firms include investing in energy-efficient lighting and HVAC systems and introducing company-wide recycling schemes. Overall, however, it appears that more progress has been made in operations compared to production activities. Likely reflecting the cost and complexity of installing energy efficient lighting versus re-engineering products or investing in new machinery.
