Open to BITC members and non-members

Thu, 16 July 2020  @  10:00  –  11:00

As lockdowns ease, businesses are confronted by stark choices about how to adapt their workplaces to a profoundly different economic, environmental and social landscape.  Many anticipate a long-term shift to home working, more flexible office use and even a rebalancing of the UK economy away from London.  There are significant implications for the decisions responsible businesses make in the months to come.   

One pathway allows us to lock in significant environmental improvements, greater resilience for our organisations, better employee wellbeing and long-term financial stability.  The other risks prioritising short term financial recovery over these wider benefits, and missing this window of opportunity to make major inroads into the Paris climate commitments and Sustainable Development Goals. 

In this webinar, BITC and guest speakers will provide guidance on how to manage the workplace transition, drawing on our Circular Office guidance, net zero carbon insights and employee wellbeing expertise.   

This webinar is an opportunity to rethink resource and waste transformation. It will explain how to eliminate avoidable waste and to turn ‘waste’ into ‘wealth’. For any business that recognises its responsibility to change, this is the starting place.

This event is part of BITC’s response to the global call to build back better – get involved in our campaign to radically change the expectations and impact of responsible business.

About the webinar

Participants will gain insight into good practice when:

  • identifying opportunities to reduce, reuse and recycle waste
  • understanding the benefits for business, society and the environment
  • establishing your starting point, prioritising actions and deciding on your level of ambition
  • engaging internally with senior management and employees, and externally with suppliers, landlords and other tenants.

The target audience is anyone responsible for waste management and sustainability in organisations, whether in a formal capacity or through participating in a green team. The content is designed to be relevant to organisations both large and small, and from all sectors including professional services to retailers, manufacturers and construction companies.
