Sustainability a main focus at NMW

Australia’s leading manufacturing industry event, National Manufacturing Week is focusing on helping manufacturers boost their green credentials.

This year’s event will give manufacturers greater access to ideas and technologies for reducing their environmental impact while strengthening their competitive edge.

NMW 2012 will for the first time feature a dedicated Sustainable Manufacturing Product Zone, with companies including Solar Switch, EnDuraSim, Autonomous Energy and others showcases their products and services.

A key component of this Product Zone will be demonstrations of how exhibitors can help manufacturers develop lean, clean, green manufacturing practices.

Alongside the exhibition, the one-day NMW 2012 Conference (May 9) will also focus on sustainability issues.

Industry leaders – including from Bluescope Steel and Ontera Carpets – will share the thought processes and strategies that have helped them successfully develop sustainable products for global markets.

Government agencies will also speak, and there will be a closed-door panel discussion in which industry can speak frankly about their efforts to move towards sustainable manufacturing.

Above all, NMW 2012 – the event that brings industry together under one roof – will  provide a great opportunity to network with Australia’s manufacturing sector.

More than 450 companies are exhibiting at this year’s event at the Sydney Showground – Sydney Olympic Park from May 8-11.

Entry to NMW is free to the trade.
