The transition to sustainable business practices can be challenging without support. This masterclass is crafted to help Irish businesses understand the growing business case for sustainable solutions and to learn how to manage and grow a sustainable business by incorporating circular economy principles into your strategies. Developing your organisation more ethically can ultimately help you reduce costs, improve your reputation, retain staff and boost your bottom line.
This Q&A session with Sue Garrard and Anton Savage is the perfect opportunity to ask your questions to the Sustainability Leader. Wherever you are on your sustainability journey, there’s something which will help you take the next step.
Sue was, until Autumn 2018, EVP Sustainable Business and Communications at Unilever. She now runs her own business, as an advisor on sustainability strategy for companies wishing to step change their strategy and commitment to sustainability. Current and recent clients include Mars; Primark; Lloyds Bank; Nat West Banking Group; Coutts; Natura; Danone; RHS; Heineken; and O2. Both Primark and the RHS launched ambitious sustainability plans in September 2021 based on work led by Sue.
