Hosted by The Daily Telegraph at its central London headquarters, an opening seminar presented by Liam Halligan was followed by three discussion forums over two weeks. These brought together leading energy and sustainability thinkers and influencers from across the UK, including the likes of Savills, OsbourneClarke, Smart Energy UK, and BAM Nuttall.
The events covered the following areas:
- Profiting from efficiency – shining a light on business energy (seminar)
- Future tech – what technologies are affecting energy supply and energy efficiency, and how will business implement them?
- Winter fuel – how could alternative approaches to energy help keep business stable through the winter period?
- Hard numbers – how can business unlock the direct value of sustainable approaches?
The roundtables witnessed some lively on-the-record debate and discussion, all under the watchful eye of moderator Heather Farmborough of Telegraph Media Group, and members of The Telegraph Business editorial team.
David said: “It was a privilege to be invited, and I’m glad I took the time to attend and participate. Frontier PR works with the national press every day, but it’s always inspiring to visit a quality daily like The Telegraph – I had to fight the temptation to hit the press floor and start pitching stories for our clients.
“The breadth of the topics covered in the roundtable discussions were really interesting – but the overriding theme for me is that sustainability is now as much about saving money as it is the environment, which is actually a positive motivating force for business innovation and change.”
David concludes: “I believe the editorial from the events will be published in The Daily Telegraph in the coming weeks, so looking forward to reading that.”
