Sustainability Directors Roundtable: Industrial Decarbonisation in the UK - Progress and Next Steps
With Dr Bryony Livesey, Director, Industrial Decarbonisation Challenge, UKRI. This event is intended specifically for Directors of Sustainability or equivalent roles, attendance is by invitation.
Please note attendee numbers at roundtables are strictly limited to ensure everyone is able to contribute to the conversation. Invitees are carefully selected in line with The Whitehall & Industry Group's charitable purpose, to bring a range of views and perspectives.
The UKRI’s Industrial Decarbonisation Challenge (IDC) was established in 2019, to provide over £200 million of industry matched investment in developing technologies such as carbon capture and storage and hydrogen fuel switching, that could be deployed and scaled up within the UK’s largest industrial clusters.
With the IDC reaching completion in early 2024, WIG is delighted to host Challenge Director Bryony Livesey for this Sustainability Directors’ Roundtable. Join us, and your peers across the sectors, as we discuss how to build on the challenge’s successes, and action lessons learnt, to continue driving a collaborative approach to achieving Net Zero.
Bryony leads the Industrial Decarbonisation Challenge (IDC), which forms part of the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF). IDC is a £210m programme with £261m match funding from industry, designed to deploy low carbon technologies and enabling infrastructure in heavily industrialised regions of the UK.
Bryony was previously Head of Technology at Costain, with responsibility for the identification and development of new technology. She was a member of BEIS' CCUS Cost Challenge Task Force, a Director of the CCSA (where she co-chaired the Technical Working Group) and chaired the Independent Advisory Panel for the UKCCSRC.
