The BWCA event of the year is only 10 weeks away. “Insight to Change: learn, unlearn & relearn”, takes place on 28 March 2019 at the Nottingham Belfry. To book.

Our keynote speaker is the Rt Hon. the Lord Deben (John Selwyn Gummer) who amongst other senior parliamentary roles was former Secretary of State for the Environment and Chairman of the Committee on Climate Change.

Sustainability is a key issue for all businesses and as the British water cooler sector is one of the most sustainable industries around, it is fitting that we should have a sustainability and environmental expert to address and inspire our delegates. We are sure Lord Deben will give our delegates some fascinating and valuable insights.

Lord Deben (pictured) commented on the value of providing water for hydration and doing it sustainably. “Water coolers provide water that is cold and therefore appealing to drink as well as being convenient, without hawking a whole load of plastic bottles around the country. The fact that the industry uses plastic bottles that are reused many times over and then recycled is positive for the environment. The challenge regarding all use of plastic is what we do about it after use.”
