Businesses know that in order to stay ahead of the pack, green initiatives are the order of the day; however very few have any idea where to start investing and how this will give them a competitive edge.

Lloyd Macfarlane, Director at Alive2Green has indicated that this is exactly what is going to be addressed at this year’s third annual Green Business Seminar that will be taking place in Ekurhuleni on 14 February 2013. Experts in the field of “Greening” and sustainable operations will address these questions and guide companies on how to set themselves apart in the much needed green economy.

“We look forward to sharing knowledge and strategies that are used by companies to remain environmentally responsible while continuing to drive competitive advantage in their respective industries,” explains Macfarlane.

“Experts and leaders in the green economy will be guiding the events presentations and panel discussions. We’ll also be introducing modules which will encourage dialogue around the sustainability of their business practices, which will also demonstrate leadership, strategy, and ethical reporting.

“We’ll also share ideas on how delegates can develop and grow their new, environmentally responsible organisation. Guidelines for sustainable operations, products and, and leveraging strategies will also be discussed,” explains Macfarlane.

This will be the third Green Business Seminar. Alive2Green started the series for Sustainability Week in June 2012 to demystify the notion of Green Business and encourage organisations to choose environmentally sustainable practices.
