FOR SUPPLY CHAIN

If your business provides products and services that help environmental professionals do their job better, or if your company has a direct impact on the environment through its activities, then the EBN is for you.

What is certain is that change is coming for your business, driven by regulation and market pressures and this will provide both threat and opportunity. The EBN’s supply chain group aims to unlock the opportunities for our members.

Currently the concept of ESG and creating a sustainability strategy that encompasses net zero is a high level one. These are challenges that are affecting government, the investment industry and large corporates, but they are coming down your track.

A number of large corporate organisations in the construction sector have developed a 15-year sustainability plan and, if you supply them, there is no doubt that they will pass a lot of the burden for making this happen on to your business.

Are you ready for this? Do you even have an idea of what it might mean?

The EBN is the platform for debate, knowledge sharing and insight that will help your business be one of the winners.

In summary the EBN will:

  • Create a platform to market/show case your products and services to E/S professionals who are decision makers or purchase influencers
  • Provide the opportunity to connect with potential commercial partners and to collaborate with organisations in your own value chain
  • Offer the opportunity to sponsor talks or to present on your own specialist subjects to groups of interested members
  • Create the opportunity to connect with other members via our quarterly webinars/networking programme
  • Give you access to the “One View” event summary
  • Run marketing and business development webinars to help build your brand and drive sales

SUPPLY CHAIN – THE EBN WANTS YOU!

Purpose

The environmental supply chain is huge and encompasses hundreds, if not thousands, of organisations – but despite its size it is fragmented and lacks a voice to represent it. We want the EBN Supply Chain Board to become that voice and a platform to promote (and demand) the best products and services be accompanied by the highest standards in environmental management from the supply chain itself. Ultimately, being a member of the EBN supply chain will be an unofficial kitemark for good practice.

Objectives

  • Share best business practice on business development
  • Collaborate on projects where possible and share contacts with each other
  • Develop a consistent set of business demands/guidance from the EA and other regulators, so that the EBN can lobby them and inform what the supply chain needs to ensure a level playing field
  • Attend a series of insight seminars/workshops from clients in industry on what they need and want from the supply chain
  • Take and share a collective view on which industry events, exhibitions and media are the best to be involved in to save members time and money
  • Discover and share intelligence on innovations in the environmental industry to make life easier for clients and to create collaboration, or even acquisition, opportunities
  • Develop a promotional directory and web platform for products and services the EBN can share with clients
