Breakfast Seminar – ‘Profiting Through Sustainability’ – 4 November 2011
We will be holding a free breakfast seminar 'Profiting Through Sustainability' on 4 November 2011 at our headquarters in Stoke-on-Trent.
During the two hours we will discuss how sustainability can have a positive impact on your bottom line through better management of resources, resulting cost reductions, and increased consumer confidence thanks to your enhanced 'green' credentials.
