Southern Sustainability Partnership 2017 one-day conference

Written by: Southern Sustainability Partnership | Published:

The Southern Sustainability Partnership invites businesses to join them for the 2017 one-day Conference in April. The conference is designed to encourage smarter thinking and the adoption of procedures that will strengthen businesses through controlling costs, retaining customers, completing tenders and attracting quality, motivated staff. It is designed to highlight how adopting a greener strategy will future-proof organisations and create a solid platform for growth.

Director, Lynda Daniels said: "Every business understands the need to streamline processes and efficiently manage running costs. This is particularly important when it comes to the complex subject of recycling and waste. What many businesses don't understand is just how much can be achieved by becoming a more environmentally conscious and socially aware organisation. This is what the 2017 Conference is designed to demonstrate."

Daniels added: "The expectations of customers and staff in the 21st century have significantly changed. This in itself brings challenges for businesses of all size and type and in any sector. However, they can be overcome by educating your team and building in a step-by-step strategy. Planning a controlled programme over a number of years, that will protect you against your customer going to a competitor or losing your best staff. The end result is better processes, reduced running costs, greater customer and staff retention. Failure to embrace this way of thinking will ultimately impact on your ability to grow."

The conference, to be held at the Ageas Bowl at Hampshire Cricket Ground on 27 April from 9.30am to 4.30pm, will feature the Chartered Institute of Wastes Management (CIWM). Head of Innovation at the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, Ken Webster, who will share the benefits of a circular economy way of thinking and working. There will also be speakers from the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA). Eastleigh Borough Council on a waste project with their local university. Compactor business, Pearce Group and a procurement specialist. Topics will cover issues such as circular economy, smart purchasing, waste, compacting to reduce onsite waste - as well as energy.

In short, encouraging smarter thinking and the development of procedures that will strengthen businesses and enable longevity and growth.
