Sustainability, the imperative and 4 ways to respond: Which are you? by Joanne Flinn and Andy Wilson
Just how far has the imperative for sustainability come? For some leaders and companies, it’s simply the way it is. Yet for others, environment, social and governance is new territory. Andy and Joanne went out to discover where things really are here in this part of the world. And what leaders are saying is important for sustainability now. In their research, they identified four different sustainability readiness profiles. One is high risk. Another is at very high risk. (Yes, we know. We’ll share all about those risks with you). And one profile that just might race ahead to define a green future.
Join in this business networking session where highlights of the Imperative of Sustainability Readiness Report (May 2022). We’ll be fast paced. You’ll connect with other interesting people like yourself. There will be case studies. And you’ll discover a whole lot more about sustainability readiness.
For you, we’ll get into Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) and simplify the alphabet soup into what’s truly important for busines leaders. Both as human beings and as business executives. Personally, we think it’s great when we are both – so while this EGN Business networking session will be solidly grounded in data and insight, you’ll hear stories, gain insights and just may be have a laugh or two.
For the very business minded, we will look into hard facts, reporting and metrics as these are of increasing importance for every business who wishes to avoid being called out for Greenwashing. These may also help save you 4% on your cost of funds.
See you on the 14th August for this insightful, actionable and highly relevant business networking session. Where you’ll leave knowing what to look for, and where to act so that your business and your role is that much more sustainable.
