Sustainability is more important than ever and businesses large and small should be considering how to reduce their energy usage. Our presentation will share with you the ways in which Liberty have reduced their energy consumption. It will demonstrate the processes and changes that were implemented resulting in a cost saving and reduction of our carbon footprint. You will also get the chance to see our facility here in Oldbury if you would like and will have the chance to network with some of our employees over an informal lunch.
