Estimating global value chain impacts associated with UK consumption (by University of Leeds)

This report was commissioned from the University of Leeds by the Adaptation Sub-Committee (ASC). It provides supporting research for the ASC’s report: Managing climate risks to well-being and the economy – Adaptation Sub-Committee progress report.

The supply chain of UK products is complex and reliant on overseas production processes. This supporting research details the UK’s trade dependencies and  helps to identify the risk to UK consumption resulting from future global climate change events.
