This is the fifth in a series of seven talks on the principles of a Blueprint for Better Business.
Sustainability is surely a good idea. It promotes the common good by ensuring that people, resources and the environment, are developed and nurtured for the benefit of all.
- But how is this implemented in the workplace in practice?
- Why should a private company be concerned with the common good?
- Who ultimately pays for and benefits from sustainability?
If you have an interest in workplace values and ethics, come to this convivial event to hear from a range of speakers from business, international development and academia. Then join in the lively conversation over food and drink.
