The Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy wants to build an industrial strategy that addresses the long-term challenges facing the UK economy. Their aim is to improve living standards and economic growth by increasing productivity and driving growth across the UK.

The Department has issued a Green Paper identifying 10 pillars that they believe to be important in driving forward an industrial strategy across the entire UK economy.

The Green Paper gives the design profession an opportunity to contribute to its success. It is important that the voice of design is heard. Please take a few minutes to read through the proposals and join in the discussion.

Furthermore CSD have created a short survey for you to share your comments on each pillar of the Green Paper, we plan to collate these responses and present them to the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy. To complete our Industrial Strategy Green Paper Survey, click HERE.
