South East given advice on winning a slice Olympic business

Opportunities for recycled products and building materials for use in new Olympic venues were a hot topic at a recent conference organised by ReMaDe Kent & Medway.

The event was designed to give businesses in the South East an insight into how to competitively tender for contracts around the 2012 Olympics. Local businesses and authorities were invited to experience how to improve their environmental footprint and how to demonstrate their commitment to potential customers through interactive workshops.

Action Sustainability director Shaun McCarthy said: Businesses must engage with the principles of sustainability to remain competitive. The challenge has been set for the UK to be a sustainable procurement leader by 2009 and business need to green their supply chains and actively seek recycled products and materials.

While Kent County Council councillor Jeff Curwood said: The Olympic Games represent real opportunities for our business community and the key to being competitive is through environmental credentials.
