IEMA conferences go paperless

30th June 2015

This month's Delivering sustainability: culture and capability conference - sponsored by Ricoh - will be IEMA's first paperless event, thanks to a specially developed smartphone app.

The focus of the conference, on 14 July at 11 Cavendish Square in London, is on what can be achieved when delivering transformational sustainability performance through capable people and the right culture. The event is essential for all environment and sustainability professionals yet also invaluable to the wider workforce of every organisation.

The app will feature the day’s programme, speaker profiles, delegate list, venue map, exhibitor details, image gallery and a live Twitter feed, eliminating the need for paper delegate packs. With more than 120 delegates expected, this will save at least 1,000 pieces of paper.

Delegates who attended the forum on environment management systems in November 2014 may remember that IEMA trialled the app then. Due to the positive feedback and obvious savings on paper and ink, IEMA is now making the app a key feature of conferences. The app is available on iPhone and Android devices so can be used on most smartphones and tablets. Conference delegates can download it at any time from their app store; direct download links have already been sent to those who have booked their place.

As the environmentalist went to press, there were a small number of places remaining, so to take up one of the last available seats and hear keynote presentations from Marks & Spencer’s Mike Barry, the former minister for environment, sustainability and housing in the Welsh government, Jane Davidson, and the environmentalist Tony Juniper, go to
