Success through sustainability – A business breakfast with Dr. Martin Blake and the Carbon Reduction Institute
“Turning your business into ‘Blue’ - inspired by nature”
Breakfast with the Blue Economy
This breakfast will change the way you work for the better, forever. This is a rare opportunity to hear from Dr. Martin Blake, an internationally recognised sustainability expert and Professor of Sustainable Business Development. Dr. Blake will be joined by the Carbon Reduction Institute, who will share a presentation on the principles of the Blue Economy.
A Blue Economy is the new system designed to lift the bar and set bigger challenges for businesses. It is smart, using energy and resources in endless loops to meet the needs of system members elegantly and efficiently – all with no ‘waste’. It moves beyond the narrow process focus of old ways of working to look at whole systems and find whole systems solutions.
A blue company follows the traditional five “R” policies toward sustainability, as a continuous process:
1. Redesign products, processes and services to achieve the zero waste goals.
2. Replace harmful materials and energy sources with safe ones.
3. Reduce the consumption of non-renewable energy and all other inputs.
4. Refine production processes and delivery systems to optimal efficiency
5. Recirculate all by-products and residuals without causing harm to nature or humans
Sound like the revolutionary change you have been waiting for? Join us!
