In Scotland, we are committed to net zero emissions by 2045 – a date 5 years more ambitious than most other countries. For this target to be achieved, Scotland needs to lead the way. EXTEND project and The National Manufacturing Institute Scotland (NMIS) want to support Small and Medium sized Enterprises (SMEs) to make positive changes in their business models, their supply chains, through to the practical skills for recording, monitoring, and sharing their progress towards net zero.

Remanufacturing is one of the key drivers to making this possible. Utilising remanufacturing techniques effectively can generate huge savings in industrial emissions and cost in comparison to brand-new products.

This in-person workshop will provide you with an understanding of Scotland’s most pressing sustainability issues, as well as assistance with carbon auditing, energy reporting and training on sustainability decision-making tools, including Life Cycle Assessment (LCA).

The workshop will take place at the HALO Enterprise & Innovation Hub in Kilmarnock, Tuesday 14th March. There will be a networking lunch.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to speak with renowned experts in the field of sustainability and learn how to gain access to additional support and training. There will Virtual reality demonstrations running throughout the day to showcase the potential this technology holds for safe and cost-effective employee training and upskilling.

This event is part of the Advancing Manufacturing Challenge fund (AMCF) and Low Carbon Challenge Fund (LCCF) projects. The AMCF project ‘Digital manufacturing and leadership skills (DML-CPD) and the LCCF Extend project are part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
