How green is your office?

How green is your office?

A unique conference, hosted by the University of Exeter, will bring together an exciting mix of speakers to examine sustainability in the workplace. Timed to coincide with the Copenhagen summit on climate change, the event on the 9th December will feature speakers from the British Council, Flybe and the Centre for Energy and the Environment, amongst others.

The day included a live link up with Copenhagen to discuss the latest climate change news and how that might affect businesses in the region and the ‘Devon Sustainable Lunch’, a buffet designed to showcase the best of the South West. All profits from the event were donated to Shelter, the housing and homelessness charity.

Dr Craig Knight, managing director of Prism and conference organiser commented ‘This was a wonderful opportunity for business people in the South West to gain an understanding of the practical implications of sustainability in the workplace. With the increasing onus on companies to demonstrate their environmental credentials, this was an essential event for those organisations who want to take the next step in their journey towards a more sustainable business model.’

Key speakers covered themes such as the best office design for optimum productivity; the latest technological developments; the pro’s and con’s of green buildings; the difference between the green intention and business reality and much more.
