CitySession: Social Value and your Business
- Date & Time
- Rider Levett Bucknall, 4th Floor, 1 King St, Manchester M2 6AW
Using leading retail examples as inspiration in this valuable discussion, this CitySession will look at how businesses in Manchester are contributing to social value through their corporate responsibility strategies. What small gestures can make a difference to people’s lives?From growing sustainable materials and tracking the life of a garment, to reusing, recycling and donating products.
This event is for every sector and type of business. We will provide examples and stories from celebrated consumer brands to lead the conversation.
We ask what steps organisations need to take to be socially conscious in 2018 and beyond. It is now not enough to reserve a date in the company diary for CSR days or raise some money for a nominated charity. Businesses can change lives through local procurement, reach out to local and hard-to-reach communities and give opportunities to those who really need it.
An introduction for the event will be delivered by Jen Pemberton of ANTZ Network who will explain social value and how companies can align Corporate & Social Strategy though ANTZ Services and how this network of Business, Charity & 3rd Sector organisations are helping communities and individuals in Manchester and beyond.
