Practical Sustainability for SMEs (and how to profit by it)

Small manufacturing companies often struggle to incorporate sustainability into their business practices, perceiving it to be too difficult or cost prohibitive to implement. In this workshop, we show that sustainability is not just about the environment, but an important step towards an efficient business model that reduces waste, cuts costs and increases profit.

This workshop will:

  • Explain how sustainable practices can improve your bottom line.
  • Discuss ways to assess and implement more sustainable manufacturing methods.
  • Explore the funding options that support sustainability & innovation in small businesses.
  • Look at successful projects and programs from a number of manufacturing sectors.

Topics covered:

  • Investing in processes that reduce energy.
  • Approaches for reducing waste and increasing recycling.
  • Methods and technologies for improving process efficiency.
  • Working with supply chains to improve sustainability and profitability.
