Ms Golds will be addressing 'Environmental footprints: Mapping, measuring and managing your impacts' session from an environmental management perspective, looking at the structure and methodology of Environmental Management Systems (EMS).

She will discuss how an EMS is used to manage environmental impact, through resources used, highlighting the largest impact and identifying effects that an organisation may not have even considered, in addition to the management of waste.

As well as examining how EMS helps an organisation capture data and use it to establish targets to reduce environmental impacts.

She will also be using client case studies to illustrate organisations that have effectively used environmental management systems and achieved proven benefits.

"The scale of the Sustainable Business conference demonstrates that environmental issues are now high on the corporate agenda."
