Johnson Matthey (JM), a global leader in sustainable technologies, is pleased to announce that it has joined the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Hydrogen and, along with other leading companies in hydrogen, will be supporting its secretariat. The Group is focused on raising awareness of and building support for large scale hydrogen projects in the UK.
Ever since it was formed in July 2018, the APPG has provided a forum for engagement with government and industry and emphasised the importance of hydrogen in the climate change debate. Many of the recommendations from the APPG’s report on how the UK’s hydrogen sector can support the country’s economic recovery, published in summer 2020, are reflected in recent government and policy announcements.
Through supporting the secretariat, JM joins the APPG in recognising hydrogen’s potential to enable the UK to meet net-zero targets and establish the UK as a global technology leader. Through participating in the APPG, and as a member of the UK’s Hydrogen Advisory Council, JM looks forward to working across government and industry at this critical juncture, to establish a viable hydrogen economy in the UK.
