This is our second national Sustainability conference organised in conjunction with our London South East and East of England Regional Groups. Feedback from our 2014 conference -
"....probably the most useful conference I have been to in years" - "having grown an aversion to large conferences where only the great and the good appear to speak representing the same companies, with little or no time to speak to anyone about anything of real significance. Here there were facilitated workshops, a virtual café, practical suggestions, case studies, people grappling with issues that others seemed to have an actual understanding of --Refreshing"
A very different conference developed by our members for our members - a firsthand opportunity to learn from leading sustainability Practitioners sharing hard won knowledge and experience.
IEMA EMS National Forum 1st December 2015 – Manchester
Enhancing performance through the revised ISO 14001
Strategy, Risk, Resilience and Improvement
The revised ISO 14001 will challenge many existing users – whether it’s aligning your EMS to support the strategic direction of the business; taking a life-cycle perspective to drive product improvement; or working with supply chains and customers to reduce environmental impacts.
This conference will help you to understand and implement the new standard. You’ll hear from leading organisations on how they are tackling the transition; find out the approach certification auditors will take when assessing the new requirements; and gain insights on how to get leaders engaged in driving performance improvement.
