It's all go on the North West front

2nd September 2017


​Hello, and welcome to the North West regional update. In the coming weeks, we have the following IEMA events planned in the region.

On 5 September, we have organised a site visit to Tesla Cars in Knutsford. This will provide members with an opportunity to find out more about the latest technologies being used in the sector; a chance to hear from Tesla representatives on a range of topic areas including battery technology, use of data and infrastructure, and to learn more about the challenges being faced.

On 11 October in Manchester we have organised a Corporate Sustainability Reporting seminar. The morning event will feature a series of speakers, providing informative practical case studies on the benefits of engaging with corporate reporting and how to effectively engage with relevant departments for integrated reporting. Further information, and how to book for these events, can be viewed at www.iema.net/events

In the North West regional group, we are also planning a series of further events for the autumn and winter. Further details will be published soon online. If you would like to get involved in volunteering and supporting the regional group, or would like to get in contact, please email northwest@iema.net
