Executive Breakfast Go green reduce your carbon footprint!

Manufacturing & Logistics IT Magazine in partnership with the Carbon Trust, ILOG and Accenture presents..

Go green reduce your carbon footprint! at the Hilton Metropole Hotel, London, on Tuesday 25th November 2008

Environmental challenges, regulatory and governmental pressures, as well as the emergence of carbon trading markets are prompting companies to start reducing their carbon footprint. Nevertheless, too few tools are available today for companies to measure the environmental costs and benefits of their supply chain initiatives. With this in mind, Manufacturing & Logistics IT magazine, in conjunction with the CARBON TRUST, ILOG and ACCENTURE, is to run an Executive Breakfast Briefing at the Hilton Metropole Hotel, London on 25th November, offering expert opinion on how companies can reduce their CO2 emissions, make decisions that are both economically and ecologically sound, and properly evaluate the impact of transport and supply chain strategies on their carbon footprint.

Manufacturing & Logistics IT Magazine chief editor Ed Holden will introduce the conference; considering current energy efficiency challenges and how UK manufacturers, logistics professionals and retailers can genuinely benefit from a sound green strategy throughout their organisation. The presentation will also consider overall energy efficiency best practice issues and how supply chain IT and reputable consultancies can potentially aid manufacturers, third-party logistics companies and retailers to optimise their cost-saving and energy efficiency regimes. Manufacturing & Logistics IT magazine will also chair a closing workshop discussion session.

Martin Barrow, Customer and Projects Manager CARBON TRUST will talk about bringing consistency to product carbon footprinting.  Martin will outline current Government carbon footprint reduction targets, explain about the benefits of carbon credits, and consider innovation, vision, opportunities, and also provide a few best practice tips.

Rob Atkinson, Senior Executive, Global Supply Chain Management, ACCENTURE, will offer his views on green and cost-reduction best practice, outline some guidelines from Accentures recommended green methodology and reference a number of successful carbon reduction projects that the consultancy has recently been involved with.

Philippe Rechaussat, pre-sales manager EMEA, ILOG, will then take a look at ILOGs own green optimisation solution. This presentation will be based on two successful case studies representing different but equally successful routes to reducing carbon emission, while taking into consideration the companys sustained service levels and the continuing importance of customer proximity, whilst reducing business risk and transport costs.
