SELKIE Supply Chain Diversification Webinar – Materials

SELKIE Supply Chain Diversification Webinar – Materials

In the first webinar of the Selkie series in August, we focused on the importance of diversification and innovation to the sustainability of a busines; and the opportunities in the wave and tidal stream sectors. Please click below to watch the webinar ‘Sustainability through Diversification’. 

The current climate has shown that now, more than ever, growing our green (or blue) economy is so important. The recent hardship has also enforced the importance of local supply chain sustainability to businesses. It is for that reason, diversification into the marine renewable energy sector can help.

This is a rapidly growing sector, with many opportunities arising as well as political and financial backing. Listen to our webinar and join the SELKIE network to learn why you should get involved in the marine renewable energy sector!
