The era of sustainability has begun and every company has a responsibility to reduce its environmental impact.
But, how do you define your goals? How do you secure active commitment and investment from key internal stakeholders and from those across your supply chain? What are the opportunities and the challenges?
Join EGN's new peer group on sustainability to learn how to lead the way. We promise you a network and a setting to learn with and from your peers.
About the topic
Sustainability is becoming more important for all companies, regardless of their industry. Leading companies have all made strong commitments to sustainability, partly through transparency and partly through creating a greener supply chain. Through having a robust sustainability strategy, every company can adopt a business approach to creating long-term value and fostering company durability in tomorrow's ecological, social, and economic environment. Investors have, over the past few years, begun to prioritise sustainability and seek out innovative companies who have put sustainability at the heart of their business model.
About the new peer group
We are forming this new peer group to bring together business leaders with a high-level responsibility for the design and implementation of their company's sustainability strategy and policies. If you are forward-thinking and in-charge of finding even better, greener ways for your company to operate, then this group is for you!
We ensure a good mix of industries creating a diversity of perspectives and richness of innovative ideas for you and your company. Purposefully, we restrict membership to business executives, decision-makers and critical influencers - and, we avoid recruiting direct competitors to any member. Since this is a peer network, we also do not allow consultants and other vendors to become members, preferring instead to invite them to provide expert insights as guest speakers should that be of interest to the group members.
Potential topics for the peer group meetings
Our meetings focus on the challenges our members find the most important. They exchange views and experiences, gain new perspectives, get feedback on their ideas, and reflect on future best practices.
The discussions are held on the strategic level; some topics could be:
- Your business's Sustainability Strategy
- switching from reactive to proactive
- development, implementation, and governance
- from strategy to action - creating enhanced business performance with sustainability
- the tension between long-term sustainability initiatives (requiring investment) and the need for short-term business results and uplift
- Cross-border initiatives, regulations, and laws (and integrating them in your business approach)
- EU' Green Deal and "Fit for 25" roadmap
- UN's Sustainable Development Goals
