Is your business looking forward? Social responsibility, impact, and the future of business iiE FREE Online Event Wednesday 7th October 2020 4pm – 5pm 

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Investors in the Environment (iiE) Awards, and to celebrate the occasion we are launching a full programme of free online events for you and your team to join.

We are planning a week-long series of webinars to engage organisations with different environmental initiatives to inspire, influence and share best practice. The programme will culminate in the iiE Awards on International Clean Air Day (Thursday 8th October).

Join us on Wednesday 7th October, at 4pm, for a free online event called ‘Is your business looking forward? Social responsibility, impact, and the future of business’.

Did you know that after Covid-19 over 53% of the UK public now favours purpose-driven brands? If there is one thing that this pandemic has showed us is that we’re all part of a community, whether small or large, local or international. We’re here to look after one another and care about people and the planet so that business can thrive too.

Alice Troiano Meanwhile, even before Covid-19, 70% of Millennials claimed to spend more with brands that support causes with an impact and over 80% considered it when choosing their next job. More customers, smarter talent and better results. This is what social responsibility brings about and how the future of business looks like. Now the question is, are you ready for it?
Hear from Alice Troiano, the co-founder and CEO of G.APP17, a digital platform that helps businesses and non-profit organisations come together to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. By giving life to the 17th SDG, G.APP17 enables businesses to find the right charity partner and build impact stories together. As part of her consulting experience Alice has previously supported organisations and businesses on partnerships and impact strategies both in the UK and internationally. She is a purpose driven entrepreneur striving for a world where social impact and sustainability are no longer up for debate. With this event, hear more about why businesses should care about corporate social responsibility (CSR) and social impacts, how to get started with practical steps, and discover what other organisations have achieved.
