Many businesses think sustainable investment will be an added on-cost to any organisation. Not only that, but the investment is seen as primarily a public relations gesture, rather than an effort to create added value and long term wealth generation.
John Munro's talk will focus on the ways in which companies and public sector organisations can actually become more financially robust as a result of investing in sustainable business practices.
The process is not designed to produce short term gains, though these certainly occur as a matter of course. The strategic gains are there to be harvested but it takes a combination of innovation, persistence and entrepreneurial flair to make it so. John will examine a number of case studies.
He will also show you how your organisation can jump on the Sustainability Bandwagon.
