"Reducing the Impacts of Manufacturing”
in association with the Business Energy Efficiency Programme (BEEP)

Come and hear how one of Worcester’s largest manufacturers is working to reduce their impact on the environment. Southco Manufacturing Ltd., a global leading manufacturer of engineered access products with their European Headquarters in Worcester, is inviting local businesses to hear about their efforts to increase the sustainability of the business, having progressively reduced energy consumption and implemented a recycling programme that now sees 99% of waste recycled. Southco will also discuss how implementing an environmental management system has helped them along this journey and we will hear about the management systems available to businesses from ISO Quality Services Ltd. Finally we will receive an update on Worcestershire’s Energy Strategy.

The forum begins with a light networking breakfast and concludes with an optional factory tour.
