Make It Global workshop - Sustainable development: strategies to access new supply chains

Our speaker, Dave Farebrother will provide a brief overview of sustainability and why having an environmental strategy is important in terms of:

  • legislative compliance;
  • winning new business from certain clients;
  • accessing supply chains; and
  • gaining competitive advantage.

Environmental sustainability is important to any business, of any size, in any sector. Dave will share with delegates a toolkit intended to show how even the smallest business with no obvious impacts can address its environmental aspects in a simple, structured way and help to reduce costs and increase opportunities to win new business. For organisations whose impacts are potentially a little greater, the toolkit also demonstrates a simple way to integrate a management system into your business and even takes businesses to the point of being ready to consider formal certification.
