Manufacturing & Industry

SLR's industry experts can help you to create a strategy and plan for sustainable manufacturing and to address business risks through climate change, energy transition, biodiversity and dependencies on nature, social and community impacts, and circular economy opportunities. Not only do we create strategy and plans, but we also deliver the projects, drive value, minimise risk and help you look to the future.

We have industry experts who truly understand the complexities of manufacturing processes, the regulatory requirements, compliance obligations, cost pressures, operational safety and the need to build a sustainable supply chain. Our work has supported clients from across automotive, technology, consumer goods and many more.
