GBN was delighted to welcome FB Parrish & Sons’ Robyn Mason at this morning’s seminar, which looked at the risk posed to businesses from climate change.
The session, which was extremely well received, turned the tables on the usual ‘what can we do to prevent climate change’ approach to focus on how you can prepare to protect your business from the ravages of climate change. Areas covered were flooding, air, cold, heat, extreme weather, supply chain and other areas. A formal presentation from ex-NQA assessor Dr Margaret Rooney was followed up by a workshop session, where delegates were encouraged to share best practice relating to their own preparations for climate change.
Comments included: “Excellent event with a good level of participation”, “Good discussion. Very thought provoking”, and “Presentation was excellent and the workshop was collaborative and very interesting.”
