LIGHTENING THE IMPACT OF HEAVY INDUSTRY

The European Green Deal commits the EU to carbon neutrality by 2050 and policymakers want industry to ‘pave the way’ with a transition towards net zero emissions for a cleaner, healthier future.

Hosting leaders from the worlds of industry, innovation, science, government and investment, Sustainable Industrial Manufacturing (SIM) in Belgium will provide an opportunity for those at the frontier of cleaner manufacturing to present sustainable solutions to business leaders from across five hard-to-abate sectors.

WHAT IS THE SIM SERIES?

A series of regional exhibitions and conferences that can support and facilitate the transition towards cleaner manufacturing around the world.

Why? Heavy industry is responsible for 30% of carbon emissions and an industry transition towards net zero is vital to limit global warming to 2°C by 2050. And we're passionate about manufacturing! The team behind SIM has been delivering events for heavy industry for 40+ years.
