Countdown begins to Envirowise eco-design webinar

Businesses have until the 25 February to sign up for a free, online 'webinar' to help them gain a deeper understanding of eco-design and save money.

Businesses who register for the session on February 25 can log on to attend virtual seminars covering product and packaging eco-design, relevant legislation and live product and packaging disassembly exercises.

Run by sustainable business experts, Envirowise, the webinar will culminate in a roundtable discussion, where attendees will be given the opportunity to ask their own eco-design questions to a panel of experts. The webinar will also provide an in-depth look at the design process, offering practical advice on how eco-design methodologies can be applied.

Jenni Rosser, Envirowise's cleaner design specialist, says: "The feedback we have had from our previous webinar has been extremely positive, with nine out of ten of those who participated saying they would sign up for another one.

"We have developed the content to give a much broader picture of the eco-design process and include more practical elements which we think will be of use and interest to anyone involved in the design process."
