As a small business in the UK, what does sustainability actually mean and how do you make your business more sustainable?
Sustainability plays an increasingly important part of any modern business, but what are the main challenges and things to consider for small businesses that’s keen to put sustainability at its core, given a backdrop of a fast changing environment of sustainability politics?
In the first of a new series of Hatch panel discussions, we’ll cover how to go about deciding on the ethics and values of an organisation at an early stage, through to how you grow your business in a scalable fashion both financially and in terms of impact. Crucially, we’ll also be discussing how you turn that impact into a powerful narrative around the difference you’re making as a business.
