Last week the Supply Chain Sustainability School hosted a free event focusing on sustainability in the building sector. Feedback was overwhelmingly positive, with responses rating it 8.7/10 for relevance and 9.5/10 for how likely they would recommend future events to others.
The event, held in Western Sydney, featured presentations from key experts who discussed topics such as:
- Having, or how to become part of, a supply chain that is knowledgeable on sustainability.
- How to apply sustainable thinking in your organisation, products and proposals through, for instance, Environmental Product Declarations and Life Cycle Assessments.
- Edge Environment CEO Jonas Bengtsson demonstrated the clear and sexy benefits of making economic, social and environmental values of the same importance when designing objectives – all using science-based, solid information.
The presentation videos are now online so you can watch them in your own time. If you have 15 minutes to learn more about sustainability in business, you could:
