Responsible Products & Materials Seminar

Tackling the challenges of the modern supply chain

Making sustainable product and material choices can be complex and time consuming. How can the building materials sector overcome the challenges involved?

It is essential we reduce our carbon emissions and minimize risks in our supply chains. This one day seminar will bring the industry together to share information and look at how we can collaborate to drive the sector forward.

Join us to hear from industry practitioners on their strategies and processes, and discuss what the next steps are to accelerate the adoption of products and materials with low environmental impact and positive social outcomes. The agenda will address the main challenges of time, budget and competing priorities when it comes to implementing significant changes in the choice of materials.

Attend to:

  • Improve your understanding of how to navigate certifications and look for sustainable materials
  • Hear about sustainable material database projects
  • Learn from industry practitioners how they tackled their material challenges and how it drove opportunities in projects. What does the journey look like for suppliers and manufacturers?
