The managing director of a leading Sheffield-based logistics firm will deliver a talk at the launch of an innovative Supply Chain Environmental Analysis Tool (SCEnAT+) in London.
DBL Logistics' David Clarkson is a guest speaker the SCEnAT+ launch which is being held at Microsoft UK London on September 24.
SCEnAT+ is an online tool that enables companies to map their supply chains and identify CO2 emission reduction opportunities.

David said: "It is a huge honour to be invited as a guest speaker to the launch of the innovative SCEnAT+ tool.
"I am proud to say that DBL Logistics played a part in the tool's development and for any companies involved the tool offers a unique opportunity to gain a new perspective of their supply chain and identify opportunities for both carbon and financial savings."
