Our evening conference will explore how growth in sustainable consumer behaviour is driving industry leaders to adapt their operations and evolve their business models. We will discuss examples of the momentum in conscious consumption from a panel of innovative consumer businesses, as well as detailed insight into two very different - and equally pioneering - corporate responses to these habits.

Please join us to learn about the power of your decisions as consumers to drive systematic social change, and to gain inspiration as business professionals on how to drive the change within your own organisation or team. In addition, we are serving a delicious dinner and cocktails to make this networking evening one that is not to be missed!
