Panel discussion title: “No data, no compliance, no business”

As the topic of sustainability rapidly changes from an organisational ‘nice to have’ to a compliance issue, the need for reliable, well managed data becomes increasingly business critical. This panel discussion will unpack incoming regulatory requirements, to understand better where the impact will most be felt by industry, and what that means in practice for brands. The panel will explore potential solutions to meet these challenges, so that outdoor businesses can lead the way in the new era of compliance. A panel of industry experts will address data and compliance, and touch upon policy and system requirements, as well as offering an operations and brand perspective on what is required to monitor, act and evidence.
