Ethical and Sustainable Business in 2020 - In the Shadow of COVID-19

Presented by

Sarah Duncan - Sustainable Business Development and Ethical Marketing Consultant/Trainer

About this talk

Before the freight train called coronavirus hit us, there was a lot of business talk around sustainability. As we come out the other side of Covid-19, what will we have learned and does it augur well for better and more ethical business practices in the future? The pandemic has taught us that we are not as in charge as we thought we were. It has been a salient reminder that we are all ultimately susceptible to things outside of our control. This is essentially the same message that has been building momentum regarding climate change and the urgent need for a more sustainable and ethical approach to life on earth. But for many, the environmental crisis was viewed as simply too far off to warrant the kind of radical intervention and drastic behaviour change we have seen with coronavirus. But maybe now is the time to draw the two things together and properly review the business world we want to see in the future. This webinar sets the scene and introduces a range of ideas and exercises from The Ethical Business Book to help businesses get started on a more ethical business journey – for society and the planet. CONTENT INCLUDES: - Climate crisis vs COVID crisis - The bigger picture - Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) - The Triple Bottom Line updated - The point of Purpose - Serve and Preserve - There is no Planet B - Understanding carbon footprints - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle - Switching to a circular business model - Greening your supply chain - Is conscious (or conflicted) consumerism killing your business? - Greenwashing doesn’t wash - Time to pay it forward - BOGOF reinvented - Buy One, GIVE One Free If you are a business owner, this webinar will provide you with tools to start thinking differently.
