Resource Matching Workshop
Thursday 16th May at 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
A “resource matching” workshop brings together businesses with a common goal in mind – to save money by improving the way they manage resources and waste materials. The unique EnTRESS event, in partnership with International Synergies, aims to enable businesses to identify new opportunities between delegates at the event through the matching of resources, including waste, logistics and expertise. Companies can achieve substantial cost savings, generate sales from new markets and contribute towards creating an environmentally sustainable economy. The EnTRESS team will facilitate a lively and interactive session that will allow companies to exchange details about waste streams they ‘have’ on-site or ‘want’ as a resource. Delegates will be required to bring details of resources you wish to share or discuss on the day and will be contacted in advance by EnTRESS.
Improving resource efficiency is common sense for business. Increasing waste disposal costs and growing public awareness of environmental issues means that incentives have never been greater for companies to find better ways to manage their wastes and underutilised resources. Does your organisation generate significant waste streams or consume large amounts of material, water or energy? If you an SME in the Black Country, and would like to lower costs, increase sales and build business contacts with other companies then you should sign up for this free workshop.
