“Real Cost, True Value” is the title of the Triodos Bank Annual Meeting on Saturday 13th September. As well as Triodos Bank speakers, there will be three guest speakers: Patrick Holden, Director of The Sustainable Food Trust, Kids Company’s Camila Batmanghelidjh and Jeremy Leggett, Chairman of Solar Century. Together they will examine the real cost of food, energy, society and finance – demonstrating how the sustainable option provides true value in the long run.
It will be really interesting to hear the arguments for an organic and environmental approach as we hear so much how intensive farming and globalisation are the only way to cope with a growing world population.
Of course, I am already convinced! But the meeting is open to anyone who is interested in the debate as well as Triodos customers. There are still tickets left, which are free. Just visit the Triodos website to find out more and book your tickets.
I will be there as a Triodos business customer but I am also taking a table in the “Ethical Marketplace” which coincides with Social Saturday. I will be representing one of my marketing clients, Planet Pure, a new organic and fairly traded laundry range which is just launching here in the UK.
