Projects

We believe the greatest change we can affect is by combining open dialogue, collaboration and action.

Our imperfect and ever-changing world means we’ll never have all the information, nor will there ever be one single solution, but by convening the optimum balance of players to delve into key topics, we can collectively move the dial and play our part in amplifying the positive impact that business can have on people and planet.

What do we mean by sustainability?

We need to achieve a sustainable balance of meeting the needs of both people and planet and not focusing on one to the detriment of the other – harmonising people, planet and prosperity.

When considering business sustainability we look at how the firm (positively or negatively) impacts our Earth system and society (inside-out), and how our Earth system and society may (positively or negatively) impact a firm’s ability to achieve its objectives (outside-in).
