How we can help

Business sustainability

Navigating business sustainability can be complex. Business Canterbury and our sustainability partners can help you find the path that's right for your organisation or help you continue your journey if you've already made that first step. We can support you with training, events and expert partner advice - contact us today.

Understanding sustainability
Whether it is the three pillar theory of 'social, economic and environmental', ESG or the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), to choose a direction for your organisation you need to know the difference to help you decide how best to navigate your journey.
Strategy
and next steps
Perhaps you have taken the first step and decided it's time to get serious about your organisation's approach to sustainability. Now is the time to finalise a strategic approach that you can embed throughout your business to help you prioritise what comes next. We can help.
Emissions
reduction
Working with our Partner Orion and their commitment through The Climate Leaders Coalition, we can look at your current footprint and how your businesses carbon emissions can be reduced - whether it is through the use of EVs or electrical alternatives to fossil fuel generation.
Waste
minimisation

Does your sustainability strategy recommend reducing your waste expenses? Have you ever completed a waste audit or wondered how to embark along the path of the circular economy? We have the training and recommendations you need to get started.
