The United Kingdom stands at a pivotal moment in history, with a choice to embrace the green transition or risk falling behind in the global market.

As the world shifts towards green technologies such as hydrogen, the UK has a unique opportunity to leverage its advanced research capabilities and robust industrial heritage to become a global leader in sustainable manufacturing.
