Lloyds Banking Group Centre for Responsible Business (at the University of Birmingham)

The Event

With the climate crisis becoming ever more evident and social inequality at historically high levels, businesses, consumers and governments alike are increasingly recognising the dangers of unsustainable behaviour and the consequences of failing to meet the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. Urgent action is needed. This free-to-attend, online conference will feature a series of live panel events, with academic experts and high-profile business leaders from around the world sharing the latest research, tools and best practice to help businesses of all sizes navigate these global challenges and lead responsible change in their organisations. As well as a plenary talk from one of the authors of Urgent Business: Five Myths Business Needs to Overcome to Save Itself and the Planet, there will be plenty of opportunities for the audience to ask questions at the three panels discussions, which are:
  • No time to waste: how responsible production and consumption models help reduce waste and hit global sustainability goals by 2030
  • Honesty is the best policy: how opening up governance and accountability practices can create a happier and more sustainable business
  • Fit for the future?: responsible leadership and inclusion in an increasingly tech-dominated workplace
Hosted on a fully interactive, online platform, attendees will be able to meet and network with each other and the exhibitors at the virtual conference hall – all from the comfort of your own home or workplace.
