Sustainability and business trends 2021 Webinar

Renowned sustainability expert Mike Barry joined us to predict key trends for 2021 and beyond. Mike is a leader in sustainable change. One of the pioneers of green business in the corporate world, he helped to develop, launch and implement Marks & Spencer’s ground-breaking sustainability programme, Plan A (because there is no Plan B for the one world we have).

In ten years, Plan A delivered £750m of net business benefit and over the years won 230 awards. Upon leaving M&S he formed mikebarryeco ltd in order to support organisations across society and the economy to deliver sustainable change. In addition to Mike’s insights, we heard from leaders of some of Ireland’s top companies on the impact sustainability reporting and standards have had on their business.

During the webinar we also announced the companies to be recertified to our Business Working Responsibly Mark and welcomed the new companies to achieve the Mark in 2020. The Mark is the leading independently audited standard for CSR and Sustainability certification in Ireland. It is audited by the NSAI and based on ISO26000.

Speakers include: Mike Barry, Sustainable Business Expert Catherine Hannon, Public Affairs & Sustainability Manager, Calor Cathriona Fitzsimons, Operations Support Manager, PM Group.
