Seminar: Central Scotland and the natural environment – opportunities and challenges for business
Friday 4th March from 10am – 1pm at Scottish Enterprise's Apex House, Edinburgh.
This seminar will introduce the findings and implications of a survey recently carried out by the CSGN Support Unit into business attitudes to their local environment and the on-going work of the Scottish Biodiversity Committee. The workshop element of the event will help us to identify opportunities and next steps for CSGN, Scottish Enterprise and the business community to work together to improve the quality of the environment in Central Scotland. It will do this by considering the role and importance of the natural environment (greenspace and biodiversity) in contributing to business competitiveness and in particular;
- Importance for business - consideration of natural capital as a business critical resource and driver of productivity alongside energy, waste and water management
- Importance for the natural environment - what’s the role of business in working towards improved stewardship and enhancement of the natural environment?
