Thursday 13th May @ 3pm - 4pm BST
More than ever, consumers, employees and investors are paying much greater attention to environmental, social and governance initiatives within businesses and the wider world. Influences from diversity inequalities and awareness over environmental issues during 2020 have all brought a sharp focus to how organisations can do better for the audiences they serve and how they have a wider impact on the world that we live in.
2021 is the year of COP26 in Glasgow and welcomes a new paradigm shift in how ESG has become a core pillar in business’s strategy. Consulting firms advising on ESG and consumer goods companies delivering wholesale change are keen to understand how to harness the latest thinking and deliver change.
We’ll be joined by sustainability expert, Dr. Melissa Barrett, to discuss setting the ESG agenda across businesses of all sizes. With a 20 year career working in sustainability consulting, including 5 years as a Managing Director for Consumer Industries Sustainability at Accenture, Melissa brings a huge depth of experience about how to build valuable and effective purpose-led companies which will be fit for the future.
What we’ll cover:
- Why ESG and why now
- How companies can set a workable sustainability strategy
- Methods for building stakeholder understanding
- Innovating product portfolios
- Delivering sustainable solutions across value chains and ecosystems
