Climate Change Adaptation - How best to protect your business after the Beast from the East and other climate challenges

Friday 2nd November 2018, Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre, Farnborough, GU14 6FD. 8:00 - 11:00pm

Climate change adaptation is a key consideration, no matter what size of business that you work in.

Our changing weather patterns bring not only direct challenges in the workplace (and getting to work) but also impacts up and down stream supply chains that can significantly affect your business's ability to operate and it's profitability. For some businesses, flooding, or on the flip side, a lack of water, can cease operations completely. For others, a loss of key supply components or comfort to staff (leading to a drop in efficiency and/or a rise in absenteeism) can be a key issue. 

In this SBN we will examine, via a series of key note talks and case studies, what the likely impact of our changing climate will have to businesses of all sizes. This session will include practical strategies and impact assessment to help you to manage and thrive. 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.

Drastic on Plastics - Managing Plastics, Pollution & Profit in your Business

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.
