UK General Election - May 2015

Chemical Engineering matters logoIn light of the UK General Election on 7 May 2015, IChemE's policy team has conducted a brief analysis of the energy and climate change, manufacturing, food, and water policies in the main political parties' manifestos.

IChemE supports and encourages members who seek to connect with election candidates and participate in conversations on public policy issues. Chemical engineering needs good politics and politics needs good chemical engineers.

See below for manifesto digests on these policy areas:


If you have engaged with a parliamentary candidate or have views on any areas of public policy that are relevant to the chemical engineering profession, please contact us.

Note: The Institution of Chemical Engineers develops policy in consultation with its members and other stakeholders. Our policy reflects considered views and interests and is monitored regularly. Due to the nature of the issues, IChemE policy is often long term. Short term, single or isolated issues and individual projects may be considered but may not influence or alter IChemE's long term policy position and aims.
