Green Business Checklist: Waste, renewable energy, supply chains and marketing

BusinessGreen staff

Second lecture in checklist series to explore environmental policies all businesses should have in place

Increasing numbers of businesses have put in place carbon targets and adopted wide-ranging sustainability strategies, but there are still a number of green blind spots that firms often ignore.

The second in our series of Green Business Checklist lectures will highlight a number of these blind spots and explore how companies can ensure their sustainability strategies are genuinely comprehensive.

In particular, this evening of lectures will explore how to develop an effective waste management strategy, how to make use of renewable energy, how to develop a greener supply chain, and how to ensure green marketing messages are accurate and effective.

The lecture will take place on Wednesday, 26 October at 76 Portland Place in London's West End, and will feature a series of presentations from some of the UK's leading green business experts.

The presentations will be followed by a question and answer session and networking drinks.

Full details of the agenda are available here. Topics covered will include:

• How to set waste targets and ensure they are met
• How to develop a renewable energy strategy, including how to pick the right renewable energy technologies
• How to audit and manage your supply chain in order to curb environmental impacts and business risks
• How to avoid 'greenwash' and ensure your environmental initiatives resonate with customers

The lecture is priced at £65, but BusinessGreen readers can take advantage of two early bird offers.

Those booking before 1 October can secure a ticket for the lecture for £45.

Meanwhile, those booking before 1 September can secure tickets for both the October lecture and the first Green Business Checklist lecture on Thursday, 29 September for £85.
