How Sustainability Credentials Can Support Your Global Business Growth

The climate crisis is dramatically changing consumer behaviour across the world. The need to adapt and build sustainability into supply chains from day one is becoming imperative to secure customers and investment.

How can D2C businesses adapt, fund, and operate successfully in the UK and internationally; and what are the risks and opportunities that these new landscapes present? Often, SMEs do not have the internal expertise to lead sustainability plans and it can be difficult to know where to begin.

These 1-2-1 virtual workshops will give you game-changing advice on how to successfully build your global Net-Zero strategies, including;

  • How sustainability is driving global consumer behaviour and supply chain transformation
  • How ESG (environmental, social and governance) is changing global business landscapes
  • Growth finance and where to go to get ESG-friendly investment for your business
  • UK SMEs’ who are pioneering net zero transformation internationally
  • Help & Support from Commercial Partners, Trade Bodies & Government

Join the event to get your questions answered by sustainability experts supporting businesses like yours.
