The steel market of the future: what’s the UK’s role?

This event has already taken place
12:00 - 13:00 30 August, 2023


The future of the UK steel industry is uncertain with, as of yet, no agreement between government and industry on transitioning the country’s two largest steelmaking sites towards net zero steelmaking.

At the same time, buyers of steel globally and in the UK are increasingly demanding greener steel and looking to use steel more efficiently.

Green Alliance’s new report A brighter future for UK steel explores future demand for steel in the UK, whether the UK steel industry can meet this demand and trends around better use of steel.

On Wednesday 30 August 2023, our expert panellists from industry and academia will give their perspectives on steel decarbonisation and resource efficiency and explore some of the opportunities and challenges, for the sector and its customers, in meeting demand for greener and leaner steel.

The discussion was followed by an audience Q&A.
