SUSTAINABILITY: THE NEW ADVANTAGE DAY 2
UK Parliament took the unprecedented step of declaring an environment and climate emergency. But it’s not just governments that can declare a climate emergency – businesses can too and there are growing opportunities for companies that are committed to being part of the solution. This event aims to support organisational leaders to explore this new territory in relation to the challenges you bring from your organisations.
What will I learn?
On day two, you'll hear from 3 expert speakers covering sustainable business models:
If you want to make a fundamental change to the way your business operates and the outcomes it creates, you need to address your business model. Business model innovations can create deeper more long-lasting customer relationships; they can improve competitiveness and profitability; they can create enduring shifts in your social and environmental impact. In this workshop you will be introduced to the fundamentals of business model design and the key tools you need to prototype and test new business models. By exploring case studies you will gain an understanding of how business model innovations can improve your sustainability outcomes and your financial performance.
In this session we will look at what a B Corp is; what is involved in becoming a B Corp; and why businesses are signing up in increasing numbers. We will go on to look at how businesses are likely to be affected by the Climate Emergency and Biodiversity Crisis; what they can do about this and why being a B Corp may make this easier. Even if you do not expect to become a B Corp, the issues that are covered are relevant to any business looking to prosper in these uncertain and fast changing times.
During this session you will learn how stories shape the world around us and how to harness your Brand New Story® in support of the climate emergency. Creating your story not only humanises your brand, it also gives you a solid foundation in uncertain times and aligns you with your people, your customers and everyone else who shares the journey with you.
Who should attend?
Charities and Social Enterprises and every growing business with a sustainability conscience.
