  • This event has passed.

This event will bring together social impact individuals and organisations working on their environmental impact through implementing sustainable practices within their business.

We will look at how Oxfordshire organisations are tackling environmental and social issues by working with suppliers, staff and stakeholders to reduce their environmental impact. We will be discussing key opportunities and challenges, and give attendees the chance to share news from their own organisations, exchange ideas and explore potential collaborations.

The session will start with an introduction and scene setting, followed by a panel discussion, before opening up to the room for discussion and questions.

The discussion will be led by the group and could cover a range of topics such as:

  • Examples of inspiring sustainability practices
  • Opportunities including the Better Business Act
  • As businesses, how can we help tackle the climate crisis
  • How supporting other local businesses can help your organisation
  • Supply chain influence: how can businesses make positive changes
  • The hurdles to making your business more sustainable
  • Practical steps to making your business more sustainable from reducing plastic to carbon offsetting
  • Green washing: how to spot it

This session will be limited in numbers to facilitate good discussion and strong connections to help build relationships and collaboration going forwards.

Who is it for?

This session is aimed at SMEs that include Social Enterprises, social entrepreneurs, enterprising charities and other purposeful businesses committed to enabling positive social and/or environmental impact, either through the work that they do or in the way they run their organisation.

You might have a high street shop, hospitality venue, social enterprise, trading charity or online business, that you are keen to make more sustainable and meet others who are on a similar journey.
