With their inherent stewardship and longer-term mindset, family businesses are perfectly placed to support the drive to Net Zero and wider sustainability and ESG goals. But the messaging can be confusing and overwhelming, contradictory and sometimes paralysing.
You’re perhaps unsure where to start with so many unanswered questions. What do all the key terms actually mean? Where does Net Zero sit alongside your business priorities? If you are already some way along your journey, how can you optimise your sustainability policies and initiatives across both operations and culture through authentic and cost-effective engagement? Why is sustainability important to building a sustainable family business?
Becky Valentine, award-winning Sustainability & Building Health Consultant and Co-owner at second generation Spenbeck, will host this interactive workshop. She will simplify the overwhelm and outline the key steps required to create cost-neutral quick-wins, to either start your sustainability journey or re-energise and guide your next steps.
This workshop will help you:
Understand the business case for sustainability
Clarify and define key sustainability terms, including ESG
Recognise your alignment with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) framework
Understand how to begin measuring your carbon emissions
Learn the truth about offsetting
Explain how sustainability delivers social value
