The criteria for any successful people engagement strategy is that knowledge and capabilities are developed, and that employees are involved and empowered to be part of a businesses’ commitment to sustainability. When building a culture of sustainability there is dialogue throughout the organisation, led by senior management and with top down and bottom up flows of knowledge.
Most importantly people are rewarded, recognised, and cared for by a business that values people, planet, and profit. Organisations will not succeed in their sustainability ambitions without their employees. Leaders need to create an employee engagement strategy and communications plan to engage their employees and deliver on the sustainability strategy and drive momentum. Engaging effectively with staff, having an authentic and legitimate sustainability story to tell that enhances your brand, and empowering your staff to act as business ambassadors, will give business a competitive edge. With engaged employees comes engagement with external stakeholders including suppliers and customers.

Responding to Climate Change is becoming an increasingly important topic for many businesses and organisations. It is now a key issue for all businesses and agenda item at a board level. It is not for only for those involved in energy and resource intensive sectors. It impacts every product or services or experience based business. It starts with understanding how to measure your climate impact (e.g. carbon footprint), set targets, report and look to decarbonize – and get to ‘Net Zero’, or better still ‘climate positive’.
Through knowing their carbon footprint, we will help participants to understand how to measure and report climate change and carbon emissions and how to assess climate risk and opportunity in their organisations. We will share examples of best practise and recommended approaches to setting targets and pathways towards Net Zero and explain other Science based targets.
