Here is a chance to hear from several members of the Environment and Sustainability Forum on who they are and what environmental/sustainability issues they encounter in their day jobs. The intention is to keep each presentation very short and then have a discussion at the end. The session is designed for two purposes, firstly to act as an introduction to several people and hence prompt networking and secondly to hear how some companies are dealing with various aspects of decarbonisation and the need to be more environmentally friendly in how we do business. 
The presentation will be followed by a question and answer session.
