Project Description

Automotive companies and their supply chains are experiencing disruptive innovation. Mainstream and niche automotive firms (JCB) are developing ‘greener’ vehicles combined with developments in sustainable manufacturing processes (i.e. renewable energy, recyclability). This thesis will identify and explore adaptation strategies within the wider UK automotive sector. The focus is on adaptation in response to sustainability pressures and regulatory change in the context of wider debates on responsible business. The research will also focus on understanding the city-region implications of automotive adaptive strategies. This thesis builds upon the NERC £4.9m funded WM-AIR project (2019-2023) with its focus on automotive impacts on city living.
