Event details

Thu, 25/01/2018 - 2:00pm - 5:00pm

We are hosting an innovative networking event for people working in Corporate Social Responsibilty (CSR) roles in Berks, Bucks and Oxon, so they can learn from others in their field, as well as finding out how BBOWT can support their CSR programme.

Whether you are a Director of a small company interested in CSR or Sustainability Officer we welcome you to network with our Investors in Wildlife and our learn from our guest speakers.

We welcome two esteemed practitioners to talk about their own experiences in establishing brand changing CSR programmes:

  • Mike Barry, Director of Sustainable Business (Plan A) at Marks and Spencer
  • Simon Eves, Head of Sustainability at Panasonic UK

Wildlife Trust’s Director of External Affairs, Tom Beckett, gives a preview: “A healthy natural environment is fundamental to all our lives and businesses. Clean water, natural flood defences, carbon sequestration, good air quality, healthy soils producing nourishing food, a sustainable supply of raw materials and beautiful places to live and work, are all benefits from nature that is in decline. This is a networking event for enthusiastic people who value ethical and environmental issues and are keen to offset their impacts on the local natural environments by creating effective CSR programmes."

The Saïd Business School leads the way with its interdisciplinary approach to the issues of responsible business. This event offers local companies a unique opportunity to find out how they can make good decisions about offsetting their business impacts on society and the environment, and ensuring our local economy is sustained and sustainable.

Investors in Wildlife is the Wildlife Trust's corporate supporters' programme where we work with companies to restore and create local wildlife habitats. Send an email to Richard Woods, corporate development officer to find out how your company can become an Investor in Wildlife.
