The event will provide a timely platform to discuss and debate the parameters for COP21/CMP11 Conference of the Parties to the United Nationas Framework Convention on Climate Change (Paris 2015) that is fast approaching on 30 November, running until 8 December.

The Sustainability Summit, which has attracted more than 2,500 delegates to register, will act as a forum for key stakeholders to discuss the challenges when meeting their sustainability targets.

Sustainability is no longer an optional add-on for business. Climate change and shrinking resources mean a responsible approach is called for. Shareholders and customers are increasingly demanding to know what is being done to safeguard our resources for future generations. Engaging in sustainable activity is not just a social call to action but an economic one also.

The conference and exhibition will consist of nine on-going events in one setting, all providing a platform to discuss how the industry is overcoming challenges to sustainability through innovative technology and strategies.

The speaker line up consists of senior management from influential companies who have delivered significant results in reducing their energy usage and emissions while also engaging in sustainable projects. Speakers from companies such as GSK, Glanbia and Sisk as well as public bodies like the Office of Public Works, EirGrid and eCars at ESB.

There will also be a number of experts speaking on sustainability in the many key areas of Irish industry; Food and Agriculture, Construction, Data and IT, Transport, Logistics and Supply Chain.sustainability and money
