Workshop:  Building a business case for Biodiversity in your organisation.

Oct 05, 2017

VENUE: RTE Studios, Stillorgan Rd, Dublin

TIME: 10.00-13.00

The fourth and final BITC Biodiversity Event of 2017 will be the biggest of the year. It will include case studies from BITCI member companies, a nature walk, the announcement of the winners of the BITC Biodiversity Photography Competition, and an environment fair where you can meet some of the NGOs we are collaborating with. Through talks from experts and member companies, we will also explore the business case for biodiversity in your organisation: how to build it, how to engage senior management, and how to frame the agenda.

Looking back on the three events that we have already had this year, much has been covered and learned regarding biodiversity in our workplaces. We have heard from numerous BITC Members on the biodiversity projects they are running and the positive impact that it has had within their organisations. Additionally, some of Ireland’s most inspiring Environmental NGOs have shared their stories with us, identifying the importance of biodiversity, as well as showing how businesses can get involved in some of their projects.

The meeting will feature:

  • A presentation on Why biodiversity matters for Business from Business in the Community CEO Tina Roche
  • A presentation on Why Business matters for Biodiversity from the National Biodiversity Data Centre’s Liam Lysaght
  • A presentation on Building the Business Case for Biodiversity from BITC’s Biodiversity Consultant Hannah Hamilton
  • A Nature Walk around the Gardens at RTE’s Studio Complex led by Hannah Hamilton and pollination ecologist Dr Laura Russo
  • Presentations from two leading member companies on the projects they are implementing within their organisations.
  • Biodiversity Photograph Competition Winners Announced
  • Environmental Fair – Giving you the chance to engage with a number of Environmental NGOs
