Event description
This is the first session of the EnTRESS Webinar Series, Building Business Resilience Through Environmental Sustainability

About this event

RESILIENCE: ability to withstand, adapt and thrive in response to known and unpredictable risks, threats or changes.

ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY: the responsibility to conserve natural resources and protect global ecosystems to ensure both the needs of the present and the needs of future generations can be met.

With increasing legislation, policies and regulation, growing consumer awareness and pressure from investors on becoming a circular, net zero carbon business, environmental sustainability is firmly on the agenda for many organisations.

During this webinar series, we will walk you through the legislation, benefits and high level implementation guidance relating to net zero carbon and circular economy, including some jargon busting, how to track and calculate your carbon footprint, overview of various business audits and how a product’s LCA can help demonstrate sustainable business.

Session 1 - What Does Sustainability Mean for my Business?

This initial session will introduce attendees to the series and provide a run through of current terminology and legislation that relates to creating an environmentally sustainable business.
