Sometimes described as the three “P’s” (People, Profit, Planet) or also known as the three pillars of social, economic and environment – the conference will explore, through a range of keynote presentations and panel discussions, the elements that will ensure the East Midlands is at the forefront of the national and international drive to operate in increasingly more environmentally manner, along with exploring the associated business benefits.
With its manufacturing heritage, innovative business and academic base, the East Midlands has the raw ingredients to be at the forefront of driving forward the future of sustainable manufacturing and transitioning to a low carbon economy.
To put in context the Business Sector accounts for around 18 per cent of all carbon dioxide emissions in the UK, so the time to develop long term carbon reduction strategies, to reduce the impact of Climate Change is definitely upon us and cannot be ignored. We may also see increased regulation and legislation in response to plans set out in October 2019, by the government, to tackle climate change as a response to the recommendations from the Committee on Climate Change (CCC). With the direction of travel going further than the Clean Growth Strategy (Oct 2017) – and with the government legislating that the UK have net zero emissions by 2050 – the businesses that plan to address how they become more efficient and environmentally aware will find it easier to transition to a low carbon economic model.
