IEMA unveils exhibition partners

14th October 2011



IEMA's forthcoming conference will host a special exhibition zone, providing delegates with a place to find new ideas, innovative products and services, and an opportunity to meet new contacts.

IEMA is delighted to announce NQA, Ricoh, CarbonSystems, Futerra Sustainability Communications, SGS and Ruddocks as sponsoring organisations of this year’s event and exhibition.

NQA – lead sponsor

Meeting stakeholders’ environmental expectations can result in unwanted financial pressure. Energy and environment management systems are designed to reduce organisations’ existing costs and automatically kick-start realistic and achievable performance improvements year on year. Independently certified environment management systems can provide organisations with credentials recognised at national, European and international levels, at the same time as achieving efficiencies to support businesses’ bottom line. “Manage with certainty” – contact NQA to find the best route to certification for your organisation’s environmental commitment.

Ricoh – sponsor of the drinks reception

Ricoh is a Fortune Global 500 company specialising in technology and services that transform high-volume, document-intensive business processes into more efficient ones. This is achieved through expertise in managed document services, production printing, office solutions and IT services. By working with Ricoh, businesses can streamline the way they work, become more efficient and profitable and share knowledge more effectively.

Founded in 1936 in Tokyo, Ricoh has a rich history of innovation and a deep-rooted respect for the environment, having been named as one of the “Global 100 most sustainable corporations in the world” for seven years running.

CarbonSystems – sponsor of the technology zone

CarbonSystems is a global leader in the provision of enterprise sustainability software.
