Uncovering economic opportunity in the global energy transition and transitioning to greater social and environmental sustainability will require changes in companies’ operations, workforce, products, and services. These trends will affect every firm up and down the value chain, but each will need to make strategic choices in how to respond.

I’m delighted to share our agenda and announce the first round of confirmed speakers for the Building a Sustainable Future: The Global Energy Transition, hosted by The Conference Board on May 16 and 17, 2024, in New York City.

As you can see from the agenda, this event is designed as a premier gathering of corporate executives and other private and public-sector leaders taking the next step to accelerate progress towards their Net Zero commitments. We invite you to hear how companies are mobilizing their business line colleagues to support the low-carbon journey and adoption of renewables. –  Register now »
Welcome to Anticipate London!

Informa PLC, the world’s largest exhibition organiser, have announced that the co-located exhibitions; Facilities Show, FIREX, IFSEC and Safety & Health Expo will now become part of newly launched Anticipate London, taking place from the 2nd to the 4th December 2024 at ExCeL London.

Anticipate London emerged as a result of insightful conversations with members of a future-focused advisory board which includes leaders in security, safety, FM and property from both FTSE 250 organisations and the wider public sector

These professionals find themselves navigating a common landscape of challenges and opportunities such as tech innovation and digitalisation, emerging societal and global risks, climate change and government legislation.

Through these discussions, it became evident that to better address these macro-level issues, a new forum was needed to bring leaders of property & people together and showcase solutions that create a safer, smarter future for all.  –  I want to exhibit   – I want to attend

The Ladder Association are proud to be supporting the first ever No Falls Week which is being organised by the No Falls Foundation, the first and only UK-based charity for the work at height sector, and a charity we actively support.

Taking place between 13 and 17 May 2024, No Falls Week’s mission is simple yet crucial; to raise awareness about the importance of safe working at height, prevent falls and ensure everyone that works at height comes down safely.

It is estimated over 1 million businesses, and 10 million workers, carry out work involving some form of working at height every year. No Falls Week will provide the opportunity for organisations across all sectors to place a focus on work at height safety.  On behalf of the No Falls Foundation, we’re asking you to sign up to get involved! When you do, you’ll get instant access to a whole host of FREE resources, toolkits and guidance to help you show your support and do some form of activity within your business during the campaign week (13-17 May) to shine a spotlight on safe working at height!
