Sustainable Development Goals: an opportunity for businesses – 25/02/2021
25 February 2021
Coventry City Council’s Sustainability & Low Carbon Team
The Coventry & Warwickshire Green Business Programme together with The University of Warwick and Coventry University are jointly hosting a series of webinars that will examine the critical role of businesses in our region on how they can engage with the SDG framework. We will be outlining to businesses how adopting the SDGs within their business plans can drive business growth and productivity, whilst contributing to a cleaner environment.
During this first webinar there will be an overview on what the 17 SDGs are and how they relate to business. We will then hear from some local organisations who are putting sustainability at the heart of their business models and why it is making perfect sense for them. Green growth is an important economic driver – growing around four-times faster than the overall economy; now is the time to capitalise on this opportunity. Starting early gives companies the best chance of staying ahead and diversifying into future products and markets.
