Background

There are growing market opportunities for companies that are developing and/or have developed innovative environmental products and technologies. However there are many challenges in convincing prospective customers to recognise the value of greener product performance and move towards purchasing or specifying innovative products. This leaves many start-ups, inventors and entrepreneurs asking how to pursue greener marketing successfully. The workshop will focus on company needs and be highly interactive. A range of key questions will be addressed including:

The Workshop will tackle the above and other questions through a practical presentation, facilitated discussion using the 10 Ps model and exercises focussed on your eco-products.
