Buckinghamshire Business First Annual General Meeting 2019

#NetZeroBucks – business can lead the way.

Special Focus: Rethinking plastic packaging – towards a circular economy.

Public opinion and behaviours are shifting fast and a growing number of brands, retailers and packaging companies are already driving innovation to minimise impact on the environment and benefit their bottom line.

  • How can your business use less plastic, better plastic or explore alternative re-usable materials?
  • How can you ensure your brand remains relevant to your consumers?
  • How can you do the right thing and still make money?

At our #NetZeroBucks Annual General Meeting event - let’s start up a conversation, explore opportunities to learn and collaborate with other businesses and industry leaders and drive innovation in the new low-carbon economy.
