The overarching aim of the conference is to bring together different communities involved in net impact approaches to:

  • Share best practice
  • Highlight key initiatives and approaches
  • Move the topic forwards by dealing with key issues
  • Facilitate collaboration

The content will cover all forms of approaches that identify, measure, value and compare environmental, social and economic impacts, in particular within a business context, building upon previous years’outcomes and recommendations. Key themes will include:

  • Getting started and making the business case
  • Measuring and aggregating impacts
  • Monetary valuation challenges
  • Links with SDGs, Science Based Targets & the Circular Economy
  • Aligning approaches and integrating environmental and social aspects

We’ll also be regularly updating the Sustain Value and Consciam website event pages with more information.

We will be hosted again by 15 Hatfield’s, in central London, one of the UK's most sustainable venues. As last year, the menu will be vegetarian and locally sourced where possible. If you have any specific dietary requirements please let us know.
