The one-day conference and exhibition will provide a platform for those working across the hazardous industries value chain to share best practice in effective risk management and showcase business strategies, technologies, products and services needed to safely meet sustainability targets.

Event Director and Founder, Jill Butler-Rennie, is an Environmental Engineer with a career spanning over 20 years working in high hazard industries, who says more needs to be done to embrace new initiatives, “When it comes to hazardous industries, there has never been a better time to exchange our expertise.

“It’s vital that industry leaders and decision makers stay informed about emerging trends and initiatives and, as innovation evolves, it’s time for a new approach.

“Enviro Risk Exchange has been designed as a catalyst for knowledge sharing and will provide a unique opportunity to ignite discussions on driving down lifecycle impacts of hazardous operations.”

Conference attendees will hear insights from thought leaders and innovators on a range of issues affecting the sector including emissions management and pollution prevention, as well as scientific advancements and solutions to environmental challenges.

“Resilience is absolutely key to effectively manage risks, mitigate potential hazards and recover from adverse events or situations,” continued Jill. “It’s crucial for companies to embrace a robust resilience strategy to ensure the sustainability and continuity of operations with the vision to learn from and build on experience.

“We look forward to facilitating discussions that will shape the future of safety and environmental management and drive transformative business improvement through sustainable development.”
