SBN Winter Meeting

1 March 2019, The Ark Conference Centre, Basingstoke, , 08:00- 11:00am

Engaging Staff in Sustainability – Inside and Out of the Business

As a sustainability professional, you can do all you can to reduce your carbon footprint through technology changes to reduce buildings and transport energy consumption, but to really ring the changes and further reduce your impact and reputation of the business, you need to engage hearts and minds of your teams; this is likely to extend to behaviours inside your company’s buildings, offsite/ ‘in the field’ and in your business neighbourhood

Only in this way will you be successful in changing behaviour ‘for good’ and developing a truly sustainable culture which will help staff retention, brand reputation as well as reducing carbon impact.

This Sustainable Business Network Workshop examines, via a series of key note talks and case studies, the theory and best practice for engaging staff in sustainability – looking at how to develop best behaviour on-site and within your broader local environment.

There will also be plenty of networking opportunities, to extend discussions with fellow delegates.

Who is this for?

Sustainability professionals in large and SME businesses, business owners/MDs in SMEs.
