Stakeholders Sustainability

The Event

In today’s rapidly changing landscape, businesses are increasingly recognising the importance of sustainability not only for the planet but also for their performance; but what impact do and can stakeholders (e.g. customers, employees, suppliers, shareholders) have on influencing a business’ drive to sustainability?

This masterclass will take a comprehensive look at the relationship between businesses and their stakeholders, who they are, how they can influence the sustainability drive, and the impetus and assistance they can provide.

This masterclass will be delivered by a Coventry University expert with over 20 years’ experience in engineering, environmental and sustainability activity; and supported by the West Midlands Decarbonisation Net Zero programme, who will outline grants and the support available to West Midlands SMEs to assist them in making their businesses more sustainable.

This masterclass is one of a series of 4 masterclasses on understanding the needs, benefits and actions required to make a successful business in a clean and sustainable future.
