Annual Conference 2010
SustainAbility: Communicating a World of Opportunity
Westbury Hotel, Dublin 2
Friday 16 April 2010
*** In association with Coca-Cola ***
This event is now over. Conference papers are only available to delegates, on request.
The overwhelming evidence of climate change has catapulted the issue of environmental sustainability onto government and corporate radars.
As industries and companies gear up for a major transformation in how they operate, huge investment in environmental portfolios, an upsurge in collaboration between public, private and NGO organisations, and an explosion in greener products and services is on the way.
And with them will come a whole new set of opportunities for those who react quickly and appropriately, and who communicate this effectively to stakeholders.
SustainAbility: Communicating a World of Opportunity puts the communications spotlight on a burgeoning agenda that cannot be ignored. This conference is not about saving the environment. Instead it focuses on providing you with the communication tools you need to tap into the promise and ambition of the green economy.
Chaired by RTÉ's Environment Correspondent, Paul Cunningham, and with an opening address from Eamon Ryan TD, Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources, SustainAbility features a top-line panel of expert speakers with significant insight into this area. They include:
- Frank McDonald, Environment Correspondent, The Irish Times
- Dr. Mary Kelly, Director General, Environmental Protection Agency
- James Wright, Managing Director - CSR, Sustainability & Not-for-Profit, Grayling UK
- Kieran O'Byrne, Managing Director, Hill & Knowlton Ireland
- Mike Barry, Head of Sustainable Business, Marks & Spencer
