Sustainable business is no longer about banning plastic water bottles from the office or arming your organisation with glossy reports.
These are useful, but small steps. Businesses must radically transform to support the regeneration of a thriving, resilient and adaptable society. But how can businesses continue to drive competitive advantage, as the pressure increases to fundamentally re-evaluate their purpose for the common good?

Our key themes will include:

- Developing an integrative and regenerative organisation – how can you frame and tackle this transformational journey?
- Consumer, labour and investor constraints – how can these be successfully negotiated to create truly sustainable value for all?
