Sustainability Summit: Unlocking the economic benefits of green growth for SMEs & the East Midlands
September 20 @ 9:00 am - 1:30 pm BST
East Midlands Chamber
Economic and business growth must be sustainable growth. Recent economic shocks have exacerbated the cost of doing business crisis – this has focused mindsets to build back stronger, cleaner and greener.
Net zero and the wider ESG agenda are quickly rising up the priority list for many organisations – research, undertaken with the University of Derby shows the number of East Midlands businesses selling environmentally-friendly goods and services is on the rise, with a growing trend of diversification into green markets and a doubling of those organisations integrating low-carbon growth into their strategic business plans.
The Summit will bring together industry specialists, scholars, and the business community to focus on how we can create business value opportunities whilst ensuring a just transition to net zero. On the day we will discuss:
♻ The growth in green global opportunities
♻ The role of innovation in supporting the transition for net zero
♻ Leadership for Sustainability
♻ Using your business strengths to pursue Net Zero
Plus much more…
