ANDE SA Webinar: Climate change and environmental sustainability within the SGB ecosystem
8 October 2020 (11:00 - 12:30 SAST)
Online - Zoom

---

Small and Growing Businesses (SGBs) are commonly recognized as the most important sector of an economy due to them being catalysts for job creation and having a multiplier effect on the local economy. Over the past few years, there has been an increase in the number of SGBs contributing to the protection of climate, environmental, and biodiversity challenges through their innovative products, services, and business practices. These types of SGBs are emerging as main drivers of radical eco-innovation in various sectors.

Due to climate change increasingly becoming a multifaceted global phenomena, there is a growing need to ensure that SGBs are not significantly impacted as they try and confront climate adaptation issues and environmental changes such as extreme weather and rapidly depleting natural resources which in turn affect their customers, operations, and supply chains.

We are delighted to be hosting Ashburton Investments, the Innovation Hub and Greendesign as we unpack what the ecosystem is doing to address climate change and how to ensure that SGBs supporting the green economy remain environmentally sustainable.

 

When: 8 October 2020
Time: 11:00 – 12:30 SAST
Where: Online - Zoom
