An Introduction to #SustainabilityInStaffs
May 6, 2021
Online Workshop via Zoom
9:30am - 12:30pm
In 2015 World Leaders signed up to commit to the United Nations 17 Sustainable Goals to unite people in local communities in taking action on climate change, providing clean water & sanitation and numerous other important issues which affect everyone.
This workshop will give your business a good understanding of the goals and more importantly show you with the use of case studies of companies already successfully using the SDG’s how you could implement these goals by making the simple changes in your day-to-day operation.
Although there are 17 goals in total, you don’t have to commit to every goal, just one or two can help make a big difference!
This workshop reviews the basic approaches to sustainability, what is it, why is it important to your business and the simple steps you can take to start embedding a sustainable ethos and approach into a business model through using the Sustainable Development Goals.
