Jill Rennie-Butler, director of The E-Reps Forum, said: “The focus this year is very much on the benefits of a sustainability strategy and driving positive environmental behaviours. We’re delighted to be putting sustainability at the top of our agenda and promoting good environmental practice across the industry. I’m looking forward to the talks from Amy and our other speakers.”
James Johnstone, director at principal sponsor ProdChem, said: “With a 59% reduction in energy supply CO2 emissions since 1990, our industry’s environmental performance continues to lead in both innovation and implementation. This Forum presents the ideal opportunity to recognise, share and celebrate our achievements. We’re thrilled to support this important event.”
