Succession & Sustainability – A New Perspective

Taking place on Wednesday 18th October at Leonardo Royal, St Paul’s, 10 Godliman St, London EC4V 5AJ

Following our very successful Women in The Lubricants Industry 2020 and Sustainability Conference 2022, we are delighted to bring you our third event. A natural successor from where we left off, and where we as an industry, need to focus.

Join us this October for Lube Media’s Succession & Sustainability, ‘A New Perspective’, Conference where we take a forensic and innovative look at what needs to be done to ensure our industry meets the challenges of the future.

On Succession, the future of our industry will depend on how we attract and retain talent into the sector whilst providing the right support and opportunities to maximise each individual’s contribution to the organisation. Sustainability is also a critical business strategy aimed at how we maximise opportunities from net zero economies by embracing new technologies, diversifying markets with new products, and engaging new customers, profitably.

We will discuss and debate how we can move forward with confidence and compliance meeting our economic growth objectives whilst meeting the challenges of an industry at the forefront of market-disrupting change.

Relish the contrast of past and present at the Leonardo Royal Hotel London St Paul’s, a sophisticated hotel in an amazing city centre location. Hear the church bells ring from the vaulted dome of London’s iconic cathedral (more details below), and see the city dazzle at night from the modern day Millennium Bridge.

From the impressive entrance pillars to stunning rooftop views, this elegant London hotel makes a big impact. Spacious rooms feel modern and tranquil, and the large windows overlook vibrant city streets. The emphasis on style and luxury continues in the oriental-style spa and fitness centre, the 18m swimming pool, and the Atrium’s collection of smart bars and restaurants.

Hotel accommodation (including breakfast) is available at a preferential rate of £329 (inc VAT) at the Leonardo Royal St Paul’s. Bookings can be made via the Leonardo Royal website or telephone 0207 074 1000 to the Reservations Team.

Should you wish to extend your stay, you can walk across the river to Tate Modern, Shakespeare’s Globe, Borough Market and the London Eye, shop in the fashionable designer outlets of One New Change, or hop on a train at three local Underground stations for museums, theatres and galleries further afield.

Katingan Peatland Reforestation and Conservation Project

Portland Fuel will be carbon offsetting the event as part of their programme to support the Katingan Peatland Reforestation and Conservation Project.

Tropical peatlands support fundamental ecological functions and store massive amounts of carbon, with stocks below the ground making up to 20 times the amount stored in trees and vegetation. When cleared, drained, and burned to make way for plantations and other developments, this carbon is released into the atmosphere as carbon dioxide (CO₂) along with other greenhouse gases (GHG). Indonesian Borneo, known as Kalimantan, encompasses approximately 5.7 million hectares (ha) of peatland. By 2020, the expansion of industrial plantations on peatlands in Kalimantan alone is estimated to contribute to 18–22% of Indonesia’s total GHG emissions.
The Katingan Peatland Restoration and Conservation Project (‘The Katingan Project’) seeks to protect and restore 149,800 hectares of peatland ecosystems, to offer local people sustainable sources of income, and to tackle global climate change – all based on a solid business model. The project lies within the districts of Katingan and Kotawaringin Timur in Central Kalimantan Province and covers one of the largest remaining intact peat swamp forests in Indonesia. The area stores vast amounts of CO₂, and plays a vital role in stabilizing water flows, preventing devastating peat fires, enriching soil nutrients, and providing clean water. It is rich in biodiversity, being home to large populations of many high conservation value species, including some of the world’s most endangered, such as the Bornean Orangutan (Pongo pygmaeus) and Proboscis Monkey (Nasalis larvatus). It is surrounded by villages for which it supports traditional livelihoods including farming, fishing, and non-timber forest products harvesting.
