Pop down to your local People Planet Pint meetup to find more about what’s going on locally with sustainability and how you can get involved
Using business as a force for good
More and more businesses are recognising that they need to benefit all stakeholders, not just shareholders and their bottom line.
Businesses who are have been awarded B Corp certification have been credited to have met rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency.
We’ve teamed up with Richard Garner of the popular People, Planet and Pint community to discuss B Corp, what it is and why adopting B Corp values in your business will enhance engagement with all stakeholders.
We’ll also hear first-hand from Leicestershire businesses who have already been awarded B Corp status and their stories are sure to inspire businesses in how they can do better for their workers, community, customers and the environment.
This is a free event to attend and recommended for businesses of all sizes and sectors as well as company employees. Complimentary refreshments and canapes will be available.
No pitches, powerpoints or panels. Just People, Planet, Pint/s.
Your local meetup is a great place to start your journey or continue learning, and meet diverse people to chat about life and how we can sustain it. Every job is a climate job, so come along and learn about how you can take action, as well as what is going on locally.
We welcome everyone, regardless of their experience or background. People Planet Pint is a space where everyone can feel comfortable learning about sustainability and sharing their ideas.
Afterall, creating a sustainable future requires connected communities. And what better way to bring everyone together than over a drink?
Prefer a Pastry to a Pint? Head along to ‘People Planet Pastry’! Equally relaxed and welcoming, they run during the day and offer an informal way to learn about what is going on locally in sustainability.
