**“**Sustainability” – now, more than ever, it’s influencing consumer habits; investor choices; employee preferences; and donor requirements. What’s more – laws are increasingly requiring organisations to be sustainable. So…of course you want to be sustainable – but what does that really mean for small businesses, charities and organisations?

Join us as we go beyond tote bags and keep-cups, to look at the “why?” of embedding sustainability into your organisation; and the first steps you can take to help you get there.

The session will include step-by-step guidance for writing a credible Sustainability Policy, that reflect your business needs and priorities.

Outline Agenda*

  1. I’m interested but overwhelmed: What even is sustainability?
  2. But we’re so small: Why should we bother?
  3. This feels like a lot: Where to start?
    (Spoiler: governance; process; practice – in that order)
  4. OK, we can do this: Where to from here?

*Please note this agenda is a guiding outline; content on the day may vary, according to how the design of the workshop evolves.
