The workshop proved to be an excellent opportunity for the sharing of ideas by both the presenters and the audience alike. There is an undoubted groundswell of support for improving corporate environmental performance but perhaps still a lack of understanding how this should be done. If participants could take one common theme away from the day it was that it is the knowledge, belief and passion for environmental improvement, especially amongst senior managers, that drives change. The issue that most organisations will face over the next few years is how to develop this support in organisations so that as a society we can continue to redefine leading environmental practices.
We would like to offer a special thanks to our presenters Robert Mulcahy from Lincolne Scott, Mark Watson from RPS Ecos and John Wood from National Lifestyle Villages who all volunteered to share their knowledge and experience with the participants. The presenters highlighted the diversity of environmental improvement that is currently occurring and this is an important aspect of building awareness of both our current impact and what we can do in the future.
The feedback we have received has been very positive and ID looks forward to making this a more regular workshop. If you would be interested in attending or have some leading environmental ideas that you would like to see covered please contact either Ron or David – email@example.com
