BioBase4SME Training for SMEs: Communicating Sustainability

Sustainability can be subtle and difficult to communicate, so BioBase4SME is offering training in just that.

On the 14th March 2018, BioBase4SME is running a free, one-day training event in Brussels titled:

“Communicating Sustainability: Helping Bioeconomy SMEs Boost Their Credibility and Visibility”

The bioeconomy is a concept many people are still confused by or unaware of. However, consumers are increasingly willing to spend money on products with strong environmental credentials. Bio-based alternatives with a strong sustainability narrative can help to meet growing demand for these solutions. You are invited to join a training workshop tailored to bioeconomy SMEs on the benefits of sustainability communications and how to develop strategies to boost the marketability of your products.

To register, please e-mail our BioBase4SME colleague, Lucy Montgomery, before the 7th March 2018,

Registration is free but mandatory. As there are a limited number of spaces, priority will be given to SMEs. You will receive a confirmation by e-mail if your registration is successful. Training information flyer attached herein.
