Can Both Businesses and Individuals Find Profit in Sustainability?
inClimate & Sustainability, Insights, Past Events
Corporations are responsible for the majority of global emissions, but many companies are unwilling to sacrifice profit for sustainable solutions. So how do we align profit with a more sustainable future?
In collaboration with Tulipshare, the UK’s premiere activist investment platform, we will be hosting an exciting panel discussion centred around corporate sustainability versus profitability, and what power individuals have to push for a more sustainable future.
Tulipshare is the app with a mission to align your money to your values – allowing you to invest in popular stocks like Apple and Tesla while leveraging your shareholder rights to drive ethical and sustainable changes at those companies.
The panel event will bring various industry leaders and business owners to discuss whether sustainability and profit can live side by side on a global scale, and what role individuals can play in shaping a company’s decision to be more sustainable. The discussion will end with a live Q&A, encouraging the audience to ask challenging and thought-provoking questions to our entrepreneurs.
Understanding what makes a good business is the first step to responsible shareholding, and we hope to create an informative discussion between the panellists and the audience so that attendees feel empowered to push for truly sustainable solutions wherever they may be in their investing or activism journeys.
Complimentary food and drinks will be provided by Tulisphare.
