The Essentials of Sustainability for Business Owners

January 13 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Organized by: Enterprise for Success


This webinar is for any business owner that thinks that they need to make their business more sustainable but doesn’t know where to start.

Why should I make my business more sustainable?

Sustainability is, fundamentally, the ability to continue doing something over the long term. Environmental sustainability is now at the very top of the global business agenda and is rapidly becoming the key purchase decision factor for supply chains and consumers alike.

For businesses of all sizes this means making enough profit to survive and grow; supporting and nurturing your staff (if you have them); all whilst improving both society and the planet.

Where do I start?

This 90-minute webinar will provide an informative overview of current business sustainability essentials and will address some of the most common questions that are asked by every business when looking to become more sustainable, including:

  • What is my company’s carbon footprint? (What is a carbon footprint, exactly?)
  • Carbon neutral, net zero, carbon offsetting….? Is there a difference?
  • How sustainable are my company’s products and services?
  • What steps could my company take to become more sustainable?
  • Are the company’s employees sufficiently informed and engaged?
  • What are the key sustainability measures for my business?
  • How do I set sustainability targets for my business?
  • How can I innovate to offer more sustainable products and services?
  • What is my competition doing?
  • What do my suppliers and customers think of my company’s sustainability performance?
  • How much will it cost and is there really a benefit?

For businesses of all sizes this means making enough profit to survive and grow; support and nurture your staff (if you have them); and improve both society and the planet.

Business sustainability includes what you do – the products and services that your business offers – and how you do it.

Business Case for Sustainability

There are three main aspects to business sustainability:

  • Acting on climate change
  • Designing out waste
  • Regenerating nature

Blending the online and offline approach along with practical processes to stay on track is the winning formula to being in the right place at the right time with the right person to do business with.

If you’re unsure how to find and speak to the right people, want more meetings then this workshop will show you how to target your perfect client, address them in the right way, keep a track of all the data and give you confidence to grow your business.

A two hour interactive workshop bringing the basic tips to life from the source of her bestselling book you will leave able to implement the topics and arrange a bespoke 121 with Wendy Harris to ask questions that will be pertinent to your business.
