Friday 6th July 2018, Dimension Data, Fleet.
Plastic, food, cardboard, shrink-wrapping, paper, cups, stirrers batteries... just a few common overused & wasted resources found in any office or workplace.
We have all watched and been horrified by scenes in BBC’s Blue Planet 2 of the impact of plastics in our sea-life. From a moral stance and on a personal basis, it’s clear that we all need to make lifestyle choices. But what does it mean for businesses? We look at the impacts to businesses for failing to manage these resources and the implications to profit, reputation and staff retention. Also, we consider practical and pragmatic choices and how to manage behaviour to make sure your business does the right thing and embeds these changes in a sustainable culture.
This SBN Workshop investigates the benefits of managing resource efficiency through a series of talks and a case study on practical approaches. The event is suitable for SMEs to corporate and public sector attendees, with plenty of opportunity for networking with like-minded professionals, should you be an environmental, health & safety, finance or marketing manager/director.
