Inspiring change – how can business leaders be ESG pioneers?

  • The importance of an ESG strategy when attracting funding
  • What should a good business sustainability strategy look like
  • How should businesses be measuring impact

As part of Sustainability and ESG month, Business Leader and finnCap Group are hosting a special debate looking at what strategies businesses can implement to tackle climate change; how companies can support diversity and inclusion and what more leadership teams can do to support their local communities.

Environmental, social and corporate governance is mission-critical for businesses and professionals and this event will talk to leaders and change-makers about what a good ESG strategy looks like and how you can make a positive impact and measure progress.
