The ‘Smarter, Greener Businesses’ event at Daventry’s iCon Environmental Innovation Centre on September 30, is an opportunity for firms to discover the benefits of reducing their impact on the environment.
There will be a talk on the benefits of innovative low carbon technologies and a chance to hear success stories from other firms including IKEA Distribution, which is setting the standard for environmental best practice.
Running from 9am to 1pm, the morning will also offer lots of opportunities to network and share information with other businesses.
The free event has been organised by Daventry District Council in partnership with Investors in the Environment (iiE), a national not-for profit environmental accreditation scheme.
Investors in the Environment can help improve environmental credentials and in the process save money and help an organisation to be more sustainable. Businesses can also be fully supported to attain an environmental certification too, which adds credibility to their hard work.
The running order for the day is:
9am: Arrival, networking and refreshments.
9.30am: Welcome from Alice Ellis, Environmental Improvement Officer, Daventry District Council.
9.35am: Greening your Business with Kim Coley, Commercial Executive, iiE.
