Accreditation and Business Growth

Getting an accreditation for ESG is the right thing for the planet and it can be a positive step for the business. Is it future-proofing or a ‘nice-to-have’? What response can you expect from your people or clients?

If you are contemplating applying for ‘B’ Corp status or any of the other accreditation platforms this is a must attend meeting.

You’ll hear from 3 agencies on how to get the application right and the impact it has had on their business.
It’s a ‘Live’ event, which will also be available via a Zoom link, with opportunities to have your questions answered by agency experts.
