HOSTED BY: CCL Secure (Platinum IACA Member)
The currency industry is quickly becoming more and more environmentally aware and organizations are implementing major changes in the way they do business to reduce negative impacts to the environment. Thanks to international standards and proven solutions, our industry is “Taking Action Together” to make a difference. In this webinar, CCL Secure will share their extensive knowledge on environmental sustainability. They will also share the details of their own efforts as a global company to become carbon neutral in 2030 by creating a “circular economy”, and how they are supporting central banks in achieving their own sustainability goals. Further, CCL Secure has invited Sphera, a leading sustainability consulting company, who has worked with many central banks in performing their Life Cycle Assessments (LCA)--LCA’s consider an organizations cradle to grave impact on the environment. Sphera will explain their process of evaluation and share some case studies from the central banks they have worked with. You will certainly leave this webinar, more informed and ready to get to work on sustainability in your own organization.
