Net Impact Approaches 2019

Event posted by James Spurgeon
Thursday, 23 May 2019

Firmly established as the leading event on net impact approaches, the conference convenes leading experts and organisations on measuring impacts to demonstrate a net zero or positive impact. The event offers unparalleled insights and networking on the topic, and caters for beginners wanting to find out more and how to make a start, to experienced practitioners pushing the boundaries.

Businesses, investors, governments and consumers increasingly recognise that the existing capitalist economic model is no longer acting is society’s best overall interests. Significant shifts in how businesses operate are required to avert some potentially catastrophic outcomes. One of the most exciting and rapidly evolving shifts at present is the transition from moving beyond basic ‘sustainability’ practices of mimimising impacts to adopting at least ‘no net loss’ and ideally ‘net positive impacts’.
