Tomorrow Matters Now at Sustainable Brands Cape Town

Sustainable Brands Cape Town: The must-attend sustainable business event #SB16CT

– Will we see you there?

On 14–17 May 2016, Sustainable Brands will have its inaugural conference in Cape Town. Tomorrow Matters Now | TOMA-Now will join hundreds of thought leaders, brand innovators, designers, and global business leaders to explore various topics and issues pertinent to sustainability. The theme is How to tap emerging innovations to successfully scale sustainability Now and create an abundant Africa.

Tomorrow Matters Now | TOMA-Now is looking forward to participating in the event, and sharing knowledge and insights on the business of sustainability. Dr Jaisheila Rajput, Founder & CEO of TOMA-Now, will host a breakout session on Tuesday, 17 May 2016, from 2:05 pm to 3:30 pm, focusing on the benefits and opportunities of mapping and developing the value chain.

We explore what happens after you’ve succeeded in getting your “house in order”. Where are the next market challenges and opportunities? How can you grow sustainably? Mapping and developing the value chain can identify not only potential risks but also opportunities for growth. We discuss what’s involved in developing and engaging with the supply chain, the benefits this brings and present three examples of local companies that are successfully engaging with their value chains.

The case studies will be followed by a panel discussion. The panel will review some of the lessons learned from working with the value chain, including the need to be innovative as well as to develop strong collaboration and trust within the supply chain.

Our presenters and panelists include,

  • Mandy NAUDE, CEO of POLYCO (Polyolefin Recycling Company)

POLYCO, is a not-for-profit industry body formed by the polyolefin converters to promote collection and recycling of post-consumer polyolefin packaging containers. Mandy will share some insights on how mapping the value can help develop the recycling industry.
