The Business Case for Sustainability

For Sustainability to survive in your organisation in the medium/long term it has to work for your organisational goals, not against them. In other words, it must help deliver on non-Sustainability targets such as winning new business, boosting employee productivity and cutting costs; otherwise it will be sidelined when difficult decisions arise.

So it follows that to develop a really successful Sustainability system, you’ve got to understand the business case for your organisation first so you can design that system to drive business success. That’s why the very first Green Academy session of the year is to explore the business case for Sustainability as it applies to your organisation.

Learning outcomes include:

• Understanding the drivers for sustainability (using the Terra Infirma business case model);
• Understanding the business case as it applies to your business;
• Risks of inaction – why doing nothing is not an option;
• Risks of going green – pitfalls you must avoid.

Your tutor is respected green business expert Gareth Kane. Gareth is the owner of Terra Infirma Ltd and has worked with hundreds of organisations from micro businesses to trans- national corporations to improve their environmental and economic performance. Gareth has authored five Sustainability books, including The Green Executive, and has trained thousands of people in green business issues.

Green Academy sessions are run on-line using the Webex platform which runs on all major operating systems. You will need either a headset for your computer or access to a phone line for audio.

You will receive a workbook (in pdf format) with your sign up instructions before the session. During the session itself, you will be invited to complete sections of the workbook which will allow you to apply the concepts to your organisation and provide you with an action plan.
