My second speaking engagement in Istanbul. I was invited to speak at Green Business Turkey 2012. The brilliant thing about this is that the event showed that many Turkish businesses are showing a real interest in sustainability issues. With over 500 delegates it was an ambitious event, aiming to help the audience understand what environmental pressures they’d be facing and how to turn potential threats into opportunities. Fellow speakers included Jeremy Leggett from Solar Century and Jo Confino Editorial Director of Guardian Sustainable Business.
