Save Worldwide Launched

The drpgroup have assisted with the Launch of the SAVE Worldwide programme at this year’s International Confex held at London Excel from the 18th-21st of March. drpgroup managing director Dale Parmenter and Sam Wilson, director of Eco Events launched the programme to Confex delegates through a series of interactive seminars and presentations as well as entertaining guests on the dedicated SAVE Worldwide stand.

The knowledge sessions delivered by the team introduced delegates to the SAVE Programme and how it can help organisations on the road to sustainability and ISO20121 certification.  Sam Wilson commented, ““Some smaller suppliers just stick a badge on themselves, but self-certificating, is very worrying. “We don’t mark our own exam papers and we have to ask ourselves what is the risk to our industry if we continue doing this.”

Dale, who helped run the interactive Un-trivial Pursuit training session commented, “Right now, we have adopted SAVE as part of our supply chain management, accepting it when organisations have yet to achieve the full ISO20121 standard. Environmental management is paramount for us as an organisation. Apart from the moral and ethical responsibilities we have towards ensuring sustainable business practices, the savings we deliver for our clients and make around our own business through sustainable actions ensure that this is one of the burning issues at the top of our business agenda.

Delegates who signed up to the SAVE programme at Confex had their joining fee waived and many went home with their own SAVE Worldwide poster, the blueprint for the SAVE programme.
