How does your business impact your community?  What can your business do to support a thriving community? These are essential questions for a sustainable business.  

The movement to transition to a sustainable business is accelerating.  Pressure to comply with Environment, Social, and Governance (ESG) guidelines is mounting and is coming from consumers, larger brands, and corporations for both retail (B2C) and supply chain businesses (B2B).  Have you noticed this in your industry?  

This workshop – presented with Lenoir-Rhyne University Asheville – will help you: 

  1. Begin the shift to a sustainable business model where you understand the ESG impacts and connections between your business and community, and
  2. You identify the path for change that best allows your business to transition to a sustainable business model integrating People and Planet (or ESG) into your business decisions.

Lunch will be provided.
