Update from BEIS: Call for Evidence: Towards a market for low emissions industrial products

Dear all,

I am writing to you as Deputy Director, Industrial Decarbonisation, at the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy to alert you to a new document published today by the government: Call for Evidence: Towards a market for low emissions industrial products. This document looks to gather evidence on key issues relating to the market for low emissions products in the UK and new policies that could help support and grow this market, including product standards, product labelling, and public and private procurement approaches. We are contacting you as we believe this call for evidence relates directly to your organisation or the sector your organisation represents.

This publication meets commitments made in Chapter 3 of the Industrial Decarbonisation Strategy. It forms a part of the development of new policy proposals to support low emissions manufacturers and help buyers of industrial products contribute to net zero. It is also the first step in the delivery of the commitments the government made at COP26 through the UK’s membership of the Industrial Deep Decarbonisation Initiative.

An overview of this call for evidence with additional background on content, target audience, and priority questions for response is set out in the attached information note. The call for evidence will be open for 12 weeks, closing on 28 February 2022, and we encourage you to review, respond and share it with colleagues/members.

BEIS officials are available to discuss the Call for Evidence whilst it is open. For any queries, you can contact us at:

Best wishes,

Sam White, Deputy Director, Industrial Decarbonisation
