Disruptive transformation in Aerospace and Defence

Wednesday 14th September 2022

Theatre :  Supply Chain, Trade and Policy 


The Aerospace & Defence sector is going through a period of significant change, which will have far reaching implications throughout the supply chain. As well as taking on the immediate challenges of post-covid sector recovery, supply chain shocks and price volatility, Aerospace & Defence firms are seeking to address the long-term priorities of getting to Net Zero across Scopes 1-3 and developing the next generation of products with improved performance but at lower cost and faster time to market.

This panel session will address a number of the challenges facing the sector as it goes through a period of disruptive transformation, and their implications for the metals supply chain.
