This strategy outlines the UK government's strategy to decarbonisation in key industrial sectors such as metals and minerals, chemicals, food and drink, paper and pulp, ceramics, glass, oil refineries and less energy intensive manufacturing.

The government aims to enable the transition to a low carbon economy within the industrial sector. The policy framework outlined encompasses carbon pricing, funding mechanisms to technology development and the adjustment of the policy framework to stimulate the uptake of fuel switching. Also, the government aims at getting consumers to choose low carbon products by setting products standards and labelling.
