Is sustainability sustainable?

Hear from a range of speakers on the best way to approach sustainability.

Join other members in Aberdeen to hear thoughts from a varied line-up on the importance of sustainability.

As part of the IoD’s plan to raise awareness of sustainability, the Aberdeen & Grampian Branch are organising an opportunity to hear from other organisations with regards to how they are approaching sustainability.  The event is open to all members and its aims are: 

  • To highlight the opportunities (and risks) to business with respect to sustainability;
  • To articulate the key targets and actions for Scotland / UK;
  • To highlight existing support available to Members (and their organisations);
  • To inform using case studies and show additional value and expertise in the sustainability space to members.

The event is free to IoD Members.  If you are not an IoD member please contact our Aberdeen & Grampian Chair, Sarah Downs, for further information. We will have some guest places available.                                                                                                                                                                                                             Sponsored by Vysus Group
