The report describes a roadmap for future sustainable manufacturing networks. The roadmap building process proceeded from defining the current state of sustainable business on the different roadmap levels - stakeholders and customer, business ecosystem, success criteria, and benefits and value - to discussing the changes that are required in order to have new sustainable and more performing production and service networks. The changes collected under the roadmap levels were categorised into changes that could take place in a short, mid, and long term. Also catalysts and obstacles for these development paths were discussed. On the grounds of the changes, major sustainability gaps in current business models for EU manufacturing industries were identified. The roadmap that was developed in the workshop and within the core group was divided into three sub-roadmaps that were: 1) Empowering stakeholders, 2) Increasing efficiency, and 3) Creating new performance criteria, models and means of measuring success. These themes also pull together the recognised sustainability gaps.
