This event will bring together a diverse group of leaders from various industries to share best practice. This forum will provide the opportunity to discuss the importance of sustainability in business operations and how we can work towards a more environmentally friendly and socially responsible future. As we all know, the impact of our actions on the environment and society is becoming more apparent every day, and it’s important for businesses to take responsibility and take action.

Consumers are increasingly demanding that companies take responsibility for their impact on the environment and society, and governments are implementing regulations to address pressing environmental and social issues. In this context, sustainable business practices are not only good for the planet and people, but also make good business sense.

This forum serves as a platform for us to exchange ideas, best practices, upskilling opportunities and innovations that can help us move towards a more sustainable business model. We hope that through our discussions, we can inspire each other and make progress towards a better future.

This event is free to attend, please RSVP to confirm your space.


Building Growth South West is delivering Workforce for the Future support on behalf of the West of England Combined Authority, funded by European Social Fund. For more information on Workforce for the Future, please contact the West of England Growth Hub here.
