On Wednesday the 30th April Cordtape Energy Management Systems sponsored the East Midlands Sustainable Development Network Event at the Nottingham Conference Centre.
There were representatives from all over the midlands, all looking to take some valuable information away with them. There were many topics discussed at the event, listed are the ones where Cordtape can make and impact:
- Carbon Reduction in NHS Properties
- Procurement and Commissioning
- East Midlands NHS Carbon Reduction Project
- Sustainable Development and Public Health
The issues that were raised during the event is something Cordtape can directly get involved with. As thermal insulation jackets directly reduce carbon emissions by reducing the heat loss. Many energy managers/sustainability officers are finding this a way to minimise their carbon emissions within the hospitals.
Speaking at the event was published author, broadcaster and commentator on sustainable development Jonathon Porritt CBE. Jonathon touched upon many points relatable to the NHS and their push towards carbon reduction. It was a great honour to listen to Jonathon and how passionate he is regarding the environment and the issues surrounding it.
As well as sponsoring the event we also had a designated display where attendees of the event could come and ask questions about what we do and how we help the NHS. By sponsoring this event we reached out to potential clients who we usually wouldn’t get a chance to speak to.
Overall the event was a success, looking into how the NHS look to tackle sustainability with the trusts and how Cordtape can aid them going forward.
