Carbon and Energy Reduction Projects to Debut at London Show

A groundbreaking energy management conference will address climate change with real world practices and solutions next week

As climate change continues to show its fierce face on the weather patterns and eroding coastlines the world over, some companies and countries are coming together to ask: What could happen if we all worked together as an industry to reduce our carbon footprint and to share best practices?

 To answer, EMEX, an Energy Management Exhibition, is running a focused conference November 27-28 at the ExCeL center in London to allow professionals looking to create a low-carbon, energy-efficient and sustainable future for their organization a place to share and learn.

EMEX is free to attend and open for all who are seeing an effective way for assessing best practices against other businesses, sourcing new ideas and identifying quick wins and areas of improvement. Hundreds of energy and sustainability experts and practitioners will be on hand at EMEX with solutions toward reducing carbon emissions and energy costs.

While the conference takes place in the UK and will be featuring many European think tanks and manufacturers, the concepts afloat will no doubt be of use to counterpart enterprises across the pond.
