Sustainability is a hot topic.

The effects of climate change are becoming more evident every day. From changing weather patterns and reduced water availability to deforestation and melting icecaps, the examples are all around us.

The IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Control) fears that our influence will cause irreversible catastrophes and governments and businesses are putting in place urgent strategies to address the impact of their actions.

Business are increasingly looking at ways to reduce emissions and minimise their carbon footprint, initiatives which are no longer only driven by altruism.  PWC says ‘Sustainability is fast becoming the lens through which a business is judged by its customers, workforce, society and even its investors’.

With this in mind we were proud to deliver The Sustainable Investment Summit this week at the London offices of a global investment bank client.

The event brought together investment professionals from across the country to discuss how the actions taken today will impact future generations and sustainability projects as a growing business opportunity.

It was imperative that we also ‘walked the walk’ and there was a keen focus on maintaining the highest standards of ecological awareness throughout the event.

We built a 9m widescreen LED wall in situ – thus eliminating any waste associated with traditional printed stage backdrops.

Demo stations outside the conference room showcased some of the client’s sustainability initiatives. The food served at the event was meat-free and innovative edible packaging solutions were used in place of single-use plastics.  One of these was an exciting new alternative drinks packaging ‘ooho’ from Notpla, which delivered both alcoholic and soft drinks to delegates with zero waste.

All small but important steps towards a more sustainable future.
