The annual Sustain Wales Summit highlights existing low-carbon innovation that could and should be more widely adopted to create a low carbon future.
The Summit brings together local, national and international sector-leading experts who are already translating the principles of sustainability into practice. Cutting-edge themes the 2017 Summit include:
Each speaker can demonstrate that innovative technology, thinking and practices can drive an affordable transition to a low-carbon, sustainable society.
In April 2016 the landmark legislation the Well-being of Future Generations Act came in to force. Wales is now globally significant as it attempts to transform the way decisions are made today in the interest of future generations. The Sustain Wales Summit will identify the technology available to develop houses, buildings and communities in a more sustainable way. The Summit will bring together innovative organisations and products that have the power to transform our environments buy integrating with the natural environment and thus help Wales realise its ambition of becoming a sustainable economy and society.
Innovation underpins sustainable business practice; we have gone beyond merely doing business responsibly and now need to explore new technologies, new ways of working and new ways of procuring and consuming goods and services.
Business as usual is no longer an option.
