FMJ: Report Finds Lack of Support for UK Hi-Tech Manufacturers in Achieving Net Zero

March 14, 2022

New findings on critical plant and equipment data usage within the UK’s hi-tech manufacturing industries have revealed slower-than-expected progress toward achieving sustainability and net-zero carbon reduction goals.

According to The Energy Blind Spots, a new report from building analytics specialist CIM that surveyed facilities managers at life sciences and micro-electronics manufacturers, only 35 per cent of FMs believe HVAC costs are a priority for the C-Suite. Yet with HVAC often constituting up to 45 per cent of energy consumption at these sites, analysing consumption should represent a significant opportunity to hit decarbonisation targets and reduce costs.
