Scottish companies across all industrial sectors are looking to reduce their ecological footprints and are already pursuing sustainability strategies, from ethical sourcing to responsible packaging, as a means of differentiating their products in the eyes of consumers. Of course, the adoption of sustainability practices can also lead to improving operational efficiency by reducing costs, such as water and energy, and waste.
The Sustainability Summit, which is co-located at the Manufacturing & Supply Chain Conference & Exhibition, will provide the opportunity to keep up-to-date with the latest trends, innovations, best practice and new technological solutions. The Summit will address areas such as optimising water usage, renewable energy, sustainable packaging and waste minimisation, and moving towards a circular economy. It will also highlight how the power of data and technology can be harnessed to achieve more transparent supply chains.
David Murray from Marks & Clerk will be in attendance on the 25th October.
