Masterclasses in Sustainability for the Polymer Sector

First Polymer Training Skillnet is currently developing a Sustainability Strategy Framework for the polymer sector in conjunction with Irish Manufacturing Research (IMR).
We are inviting companies to attend some free masterclasses and mentoring,  to support them in developing their own Sustainability strategies, so this is a great opportunity not to be missed.
The first Masterclass takes place in IMR, Mullingar on the 19th May 2022 and is face to face, so we are encouraging people to attend in person although the sessions will be recorded. The 2nd and 3rd masterclasses are online.
Please see the flyer below which has more detail and also the roles each of the masterclasses is aimed at, but all are welcome. People are encouraged to attend all 3 and include others from their companies as appropriate.  The first masterclass is aimed primarily at C Suite/ senior people in an organisation. If you’d like to book place(s) on the masterclasses, please complete the booking link here

Masterclass 1.  Sustainability Framework & Sustainability Leadership – Case Studies (MNC, SME and Start -up companies from the sector). Thursday 19thMay 2022 On site in IMR Mullingar- 09.30-15.00
Masterclass 2. Eco Design and Life Cycle Analysis    Tuesday 24th May online – (10.30am to 1.00 – 2 hours with a 30 min break )
Masterclass 3.  Renewables and Sustainable Certifications     Thursday 2nd June online – (10.30am to 1.00pm – 2 hours with a 30 min break)
Once the 3 masterclasses are complete, companies have the option (if they wish) to nominate a champion to go forward and get free mentoring on Sustainability & Communications ( 2 hours per week for 8 weeks ( 1 to 1)). This will facilitate the champion to draft an action plan for their own organisation to implement a Sustainability Strategy. Places are very limited for mentoring of champions, so we plan a number of cohorts over the rest of the year.
Please feel free to contact Catherine Collins with any questions on the above.
