Sustainability – Unlocking the Innovation Opportunity

We know companies are at different stages of maturity when it comes to the subject of Sustainability. To help you on your journey, from wherever you are starting, we have some inspiration from real industry stories to guide you.

Industry Virtual Forum

Wed 28th & Thur 29th April, 9.00 – 1.15pm each day. CPD certified.

Join us on 28th & 29th April when a number of member companies and guests will join us for a very special event looking at how others are tackling the sustainability challenge. We will be covering everything from sustainability strategy to sustainable innovation – seeing how sustainability considerations (environmental, social, financial) are being integrated into all company systems including design, research and development (R&D) and day to day operations. Many stories will also demonstrate how companies have created new business opportunities with sustainability at their core.
