Sustainability Keynote Theatre
  1. Sustainability Keynote Theatre
    60 mins

    Corporate social responsibility (CSR) just doesn’t cut it anymore. As climate change, resource scarcity and social wellbeing become ever more business-critical issues, so organisations are moving beyond CSR-based approaches toward fully integrated sustainability strategies and purpose-driven business models. But what does this mean for the role of sustainability and CSR professionals at the heart of it all?

    How can momentum from the recent climate strikes and protests be harnessed to evolve an organisation’s sustainability strategy? Where should the sustainability department sit in this ‘post-CSR’ era? And ultimately, how should sustainability be effectively aligned with core business values and purpose? 

    Join edie’s content editor Matt Mace and our all-star cast of revered climate and sustainability leaders for this live podcast discussion about the future of green business – brought to you in association with facilities management company, Mitie.
