Reducing our collective environmental footprint and working towards the principals of the circular economy are under-pining themes for the London Riverside BID in this third term. Government policy, technology and supply chains are changing at an accelerated rate and we see our role as communicating good practice and bringing to our Members businesses new thinking, resources and support. This will include legal and compliance issues, as well as industry and business intelligence to improve performance.
