TJC Global Ltd recently sponsored ‘Greening the Public Sector: Green to be Lean‘, a conference dedicated to sustainable initiatives within the public sector enabling them to make cost reductions while at the same time delivering these reductions in a green and sustainable way.
Overview of Greening the Public Sector (taken from Public Service Events Website)
The UK public sector needs to reduce carbon emissions, maintain energy security, and also create economic opportunities. It is increasingly dependent on long supply chains, some of which originate in politically unstable parts of the world. By embedding sustainability into public sector policy we can achieve a leaner, greener future.
Public Sector Procurement expenditure is £225bn a year. This is equivalent to over 0.5% of global GDP. It represents nearly 20% of UK GDP. It represents one third of public expenditure. The average man, woman and child will invest over £250,000 throughout their lifetime in public sector procurement. It is therefore key to delivering public services and government policies on efficiency, sustainability and innovation. It is key to maintaining UK employment. It is key to helping bring public sector spending back into balance and to economic recovery.
One of the challenges to consider is the increasing pressures on resource and funding to reduce carbon emissions and develop a cost-effective and sustainable supply network. Reductions in waste, water consumption and increases in waste recycling are all fundamental to reducing the use of resources. Common sense says that reducing the use of resources must reduce cost, though there may be some short-term costs associated with the change. Sustainable procurement does not have to be achieved at a high price. Reducing dependence on commodities and shortening supply chains can save cash, save carbon, reduce dependence on unreliable sources and increase the security of public services. ‘Lean’ and ‘Green’ are compatible.
The foundations of good practice are in place for the public sector, but what are the biggest obstacles to sharing it and how can these be overcome? This conference explores ways of achieving this with some practical examples from both public and private sectors of how to develop and deliver suitable strategies.
TJC Global’s Sponsor Profile
Renewable energy is made available from materials derived from biological sources, including biomass, the biological material used as a biofuel, as well as the social, economic, scientific and technical fields associated with using biological sources for energy. With the energy constraints facing our world today, renewable energy has become one of the most important global issues. Because this is a global issue that requires the communication and cooperation of many different countries, sometimes language barriers can arise, making progress difficult.
Over the past 25 years, TJC Global has created an extensive network of experts to fit our customers’ needs. Here at TJC Global we understand the barriers that can arise due to language difficulties and we are committed to doing whatever is necessary to eliminate these barriers. Many of the team at TJC Global are specialists in particular fields, enabling us to select the best linguist to provide you with accurate translations, regardless of the detail and level of technical, industry-specific terminology. All our translation experts are native speakers, and, consequently, are familiar with the idioms of their mother tongue, ensuring that translations are fluent and no misunderstandings occur.
