Environmental sustainability is non-negotiable. How organizations respond to climate change, how good they are with water management, and how they manage their supply chains, has a definitive impact on their reputation with customers, investors and other stakeholders.

Join us for an informative breakfast seminar on 13 November at the Indaba Hotel, Fourways as we delve into actionable, best practice strategies for ensuring environmental sustainability.

Our speakers line-up is composed of environmental sustainability leaders who have first-hand experience with creating actionable, best practice strategies in their organizations.

Participate in our interactive panel discussion and share your experience and ideas on the importance of environmental sustainability in your organization.

There is no cost for attending this event and the invitation is transferable.
