The Technology Behind Sustainable Change presents a fantastic opportunity for organisations and forward thinking business leaders in our region to discover the latest best practices and learn how to implement the right technology into their operations for a more sustainable future.
Axiom co-founder, Daniel Usifoh, will be joining senior speakers from multinational, national and leading regional businesses including Co-op, G.F. Smith and more. He’ll be discussing the challenges facing businesses when it comes to collecting, collating and analysing sustainability data, as well as the importance of monitoring and reporting – and how the right technology can make this much easier.
Given that Axiom was founded to help UK businesses embrace sustainability, we are thrilled to have the opportunity to share our expertise and guide organisations from all industries towards making greener, more environmentally-friendly decisions.
The Humber region is rapidly gaining a reputation as one of the UK’s greenest locations, and we’re incredibly proud to be part of an event that celebrates this.
The free, two-hour event will include a series of 15-minute lightning talks with questions, a “fireside chat” with Daniel Usifoh, and a panel Q&A with the presenters.
