"Resilience, environmental protection and social impact have become increasingly important to businesses and customers. Regardless of the size of your business you are in a position of influence; you have customers, suppliers, partners and networks. Your impact is significant. Becoming a more sustainable business has wide ranging benefits too. It provides opportunity to improve company culture, branding, marketing and productivity which ultimately lead to increased customer loyalty, sales, profits and staff retention.

This bootcamp will help you to re-evaluate what it means to be successful and establish strategy and infrastructure to support you in achieving positive impact. Designed for businesses that want to grow in a sustainable way, maximising social, environmental and financial impact equally.

Split into six manageable 2-hour workshops, you will have the chance to review, plan and action what you have learnt between sessions allowing you to really monitor your progress alongside a group of peers.

Attendees leave this workshop with a deeper understanding of the opportunities and challenges of truly sustainable growth, and a plan for how they want to include sustainability as part of their future strategy planning and operational management.

The bootcamp will cover the following:

An introduction to triple bottom line accounting - people, planet, profit
Carbon footprint – the basics, how can you measure, how can you reduce (and how to be more efficient), carbon credits and offsetting
Accessing support and resources
Cost implications of improved sustainability (where can you reduce cost, where should you invest)
Social and economic impact – how to measure, how to improve and how communicate
Building sustainability into your value proposition and as part of your employee engagement
Reporting for sustainability, impact, reporting and transparency
Your commitments and what that means for your supply chain, customers and team
Impact reporting"
