Eco Innovation in the North West

 Celebrating success - planning for the future

 

 14th March 2012

 

BT Convention Centre, Liverpool - 9AM - 2PM

 

Join us in Liverpool to find out about how the Eco Innovation Programme has progressed in the North West and hear about some of the businesses and eco-innovative products and services that we have supported.

The Eco Innovation Programme ends on the 31st March 2012, so we have invited a range of speakers to provide updates on the Eco Innovation agenda and what support is available to help North West businesses to progress their eco-innovative ideas, products, services and businesses.

We are also delighted to announce that Jessica Sansom, Head of Sustainability at Innocent Drinks, will be providing a keynote address.  Jessica has worked in both the private and public sector and as an environmental consultant in her home country of Australia. Her work has focused on the development and implementation of strategic plans to incorporate the principles of sustainable development into everyday business practices.

     Businesses that have received support through the North West Eco-Innovation programme.

     North West SMEs that have developed eco-innovative products and services and would like the opportunity to network with like-minded businesses and other organisations.

      Potential investors and purchasers who would like to find out more about the range of eco-innovative solutions that have been developed by North West businesses.
