The next EFIA sustainability breakfast meeting on June 14 will focus on the education element of these findings. Topics to be covered include the education of customers and the unique challenges presented, as well as how the industry is educating and upskilling its own workforce to meet the needs of the future mar- ket environment.The event will be taking place at the Gary Speed Suite of Elland Road, Leeds.
