In a world striving for climate action, consumers are becoming increasingly aware of their purchase behaviour while talented individuals are looking for employment at businesses with social purpose. 

A recent report details a shift in consumer demand, as people are looking to “align their purchasing behaviour with their values”.

The Australian ecosystem is following the same path, with venture funds considering social and environmental impact in investment decisions.

Governments are also looking toward sustainability goals. The NSW government is committed to achieving net zero emissions by 2050 — if you want to work with these government agencies, companies, banks and the like, you need the right ‘green’ credentials.

In this SmartCompany webinar we’re exploring what sustainability means for startups, with a panel of leading thinkers and investors in the startups and sustainability ecosystem:

  • Kate Glazebrook, head of impact and operating principal, Blackbird
  • Luke Hargreaves, global sustainability business advisor, Amazon Web Services

This webinar is hosted by entrepreneur and documentary filmmaker Liz Courtney (Earth’s Survival and The Tipping Points of Climate Change).

We’re looking beyond emissions to how startups can benefit from building sustainable practices into their overall strategy, while continuing to grow and scale.
