Future Ports: Port Talbot

Transformational change for the next industrial revolution

This paper sets our vision for Port Talbot.

Port Talbot has been at the cutting edge of industrial change before, and can be again. That’s because Port Talbot has a central role to play in helping Wales make the shift from the old, carbon-based economy to a new, zero-carbon world.

Here, we frame Port Talbot’s opportunities by applying the four port-centric ‘missions’ we developed in our Wales Vision paper. These missions work well individually, but they work even better together, with the success of one mission driving forward positive outcomes in the others. The missions will combine to create a cascade of positive change, and help us achieve our shared goals alongside our customers, stakeholders and communities.

We are talking about a paradigm shift that will happen over decades, so we do not expect to describe change with total precision. But we are certain of one thing: at Port Talbot, the big risks come from thinking small.
