We have just completed a major study undertaken in conjunction with Forum for the Future.
This was a follow up to a similar exercise undertaken in 2001. The Future of Aerosols 2, which has just been completed, has resulted in a practical ‘toolkit’ for sustainability to be used by our member companies in further developing their own future plans and predictions.
The process has involved http://cialisvsviagracomparison.com/ interviews and workshops with around 100 people from within the aerosol industry as well as from allied organisations and individuals.
Industry experts were asked to look back over the past decade or more and also to consider the coming 20-25 years, reviewing social trends, technological changes, economic trends and political factors. The process also asked participants to review both threats and opportunities in the coming years and to consider innovations and predictions.
Sessions have been held to introduce training skills to those who will be facilitating company workshops within their own business.
The 'toolkit' includes worksheets and topic prompts, covering factors that have been identified through the process. Member companies are invited to use these materials to help shape their businesses in to the future and BAMA will help to facilitate workshops, in house, at member offices.
Zoe Le Grand, Senior Sustainability Advisor of Forum for the Future, who led the training workshops said: “The aerosol industry has had to innovate its products in the face of environmental pressures in the past. The Future of Aerosols 2 project helped the BAMA membership to look broadly at a range of social, environmental and economic trends which could affect the industry in the long term and proactively identify responses to them.”
We welcome this kind of future thinking as we believe it offers a huge benefit to our members. It takes us beyond just the day-to-day challenges and helps establish what is truly important and not just what is urgent today, an important part of our role as a Trade Association.
