Your Tutor-Led Workshop Sessions

1 - Introduction to Sustainability

There is a lot of talk about Net Zero, low carbon, environmental protection, climate change and you’d be forgiven in thinking that sustainability is mainly about all things environment related. However, the topic is much broader and deeper than this and includes the social and governance aspects of the Environment Social Governance conversation. This half day workshop we will help you to gain an understanding of the key global issues, how these impact on your business and your daily life directly, and what we can all do to take action. You will explore how everything is connected as well as the latest trends and thinking around sustainability.

2 - ASSESS: Where are you now?

As with any strategic review, the first step is to assess and evaluate where your business is currently at on its sustainability journey. The scale runs from non-compliance right through to sustainability being part of your company’s DNA and its purpose.

Using well-known tried and tested tools for assessment as well as more recent models and methods, you will build a complete picture of where you are at now before we move on to look at your sustainability aspirations. Do you want to achieve Net Zero quicker, for example? Or do you need to comply with your supply chain demands in order to be included in customer preferred supplier lists? Whatever your motivation for becoming more ethical and responsible, you can explore these with experts on hand to guide you every step of the way.

3 - ASSESS: Crazy Jam Session

This is where you will have start to have some fun. Developing strategies is serious business, but it doesn’t have to be dull and boring, right!

This is an in-person session where your strategies and plans will be taken to a different level using creative tools and techniques. It can get silly with lots of laughter but there is a purpose, and the session is designed to unlock your potential and get rid of any blocks you might have. This session takes a close look at your business purpose, its vision and mission, who are your target audiences and markets and who are your key stakeholders.

4 - DEVELOP: Strategy Fundamentals

Using a set of comprehensive workbooks and tools, you will explore what you need to include in your own sustainability strategy and plan. During this session you will learn about the different elements of your strategy, why they are important, and how you can develop your own road map to implement them. This session includes the environmental, social and governance aspects of your sustainability strategy, using the outcomes from your assessment session to help guide you.

5 - IMPLEMENT: Leadership & Governance

One of the most important aspects of implementing your sustainability strategy is taking decisive action. Your plan and road map will provide you with the framework for this and in this session you will also explore what makes a great leader and why it is more important than ever to run your business in an ethical and responsible way. Compliance is a key part of the story, of course, but so too is having inspirational leaders who want to do the right thing.

6 - COMMUNICATE: Communicating with your key stakeholders

In this workshop session, you will learn how to create an internal and external communications strategy aimed at your key stakeholders, and why this is important at every stage of your sustainability journey.
