Sustainability in practice Risks and opportunities for you and your business

Join the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA) and the IoD as we look at the tools available to improve the sustainability of your organisation.

Improving the sustainability of your organisation is essential for long-term success; sustainable practices can enhance reputation, reduce costs, mitigate risks and ensure compliance with regulations.

In this session with the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment, we will cover:

  • Insights and updates into the legislation around sustainability in the UK
  • What to look out for when evaluating and adapting business practices to become more sustainable
  • How you can deliver evidence-based action on sustainability to your clients and investors

Hear from keynote speaker Sarah Mukherjee MBE, CEO of IEMA, and a panel of speakers chaired by the IoD Sustainability Special Interest Group Chair Donald Mavunduse.
