Buying Uniforms in the Age of Net Zero

Hosted by Karen Sparrow of Virgin Galactic, the Uniform Buyers’ Network event is designed with education and networking in mind. The closed-shop gathering will inspire new ways of thinking on the journey to net zero with a collection of partners around the world.
