The Winning the War on Waste conference, taking place on 22 November at the Lancaster London Hotel, will tell print and packaging businesses how they can best cut costs and improve their environmental performance with the aid of lean techniques.

The speakers will demonstrate best practice in each of these key areas, whilst delegates will hear how effective application of the key techniques described can raise competitiveness and productivity – providing you gain the active engagement of the whole staff.
Conference delegates will be provided with case study examples from ten respected industry speakers, from companies both large and small across all sectors of the industry including, commercial, packaging and newspapers. Speakers are from Howitts, A1 Print, ESP Colour, Kingfisher, Nampak, GI Solutions, Label Apeel, Dobson & Crowther, Newsprinters Broxbourne and Liberty Services.
They include three printers who have benefited from determined application of the latest technology incl. software, practical tips on how to apply rapid savings from cutting waste and a printer who has used environmental management systems to drive major savings.
The case studies will provide delegates with practical ideas in terms of improving cashflow and profit, and how to achieve a more motivated workforce by putting these techniques into practice.
The guest keynote speaker is Lord Heseltine, who is in the unique position of not only being a well-respected owner of a global publishing company and therefore transcending the world of print and publishing, but he also remains an active politician supporting the Coalition Government and is chairing the board to decide how regional funding will be distributed.
