How the Circular Economy Is Transforming Business

Natural resource constraints and global environmental risks are challenging the traditional linear economy—where companies "take, make, waste." Some companies are facing pressure from customers and suppliers to adjust their business models based on circular economy concepts: a way of doing business that aims to keep resources in use for as long as possible, and in which products and materials are recovered and regenerated at the end of their service life. For many companies, this adjustment signifies a daunting business model transformation.

The Social Purpose of Business

After investing in and measuring CSR strategies for a decade or more, many leading companies find that their impacts are only modest and they need an accelerated model to achieve social impact at a greater scale.

They rewire their business so that their growth is a positive force in society and realize a competitive advantage in doing so. Further, they adopt a compelling and aspirational core purpose or mission that goes beyond making money to create value for both business and society. This core purpose – their contribution to society and the greater good – shapes and informs the company’s essential reason for being. For some it transcends maximizing profits and shareholder value, and for others it is the means by which they create value and grow. Either way, it becomes a shared intent by everyone in the business, guiding the decisions of leaders and employees across the company.

Integrating Sustainability into your Organization: From Plan To Action

Your sustainability strategy and policy direction have been set. Now what?

Organizations often find that after the long process of building and adopting a sustainability policy or strategy, there is a stall. Sure, implementing and embedding sustainability into the business and day-to-day operational decisions is hard work, but that’s not the only thing holding up changes.

So how can you ensure your sustainability strategy isn’t shelved before it even begins?

Join us for the 60-minute webinar as Coro Strandberg, CSR and sustainability strategist, along with Carmen Turner, Sustainability Leader at Teck Resources and Geoff Pegg, Sustainability Director at TELUS, provide you with valuable strategies to achieve the sustainability goals your company has set for itself.

Sustainable Extraction: Environmental Initiatives for Canada’s Resource Industries

Canada's natural resources are in demand all over the world, but are our extraction industries working as efficiently as they could be? Evidence is showing high rates of failure for extraction projects, often stemming from environmental performance concerns and legacy issues of past practices. Failing to address this issues has led to stakeholder conflicts, regulatory and policy-related challenges, and unfavourable external environments. Industry has been working hard to change its historic reputation and improve environmental practices, but many companies are finding it difficult to engage and sustain momentum when the sector continues to experience extended market fluctuations and economic impacts. So what can companies do now to help alleviate these issues and start working in a more efficient, environmentally-conscious capacity?

Join us for this 60 minute session where mining and environmental expert Karen Chovan will present key strategies to facilitate engagement and empowerment of personnel to participate in and sustain positive change within our resource industries. Every person, team and discipline in an organization plays a significant role in the facilitation of initiatives aimed at improving stakeholder support and improvements in environmental performance. These personnel need only the connection and alignment of their own roles to the proposed targets, and the opportunities to present and implement solutions and strategies within their scope. With small contributions from all team players, success can be had through alignment.

Social License to Operate: Building Trust in Local Communities

Organizations who move into a new area have more to think about than the typical permitting and regulatory processes. Increasingly, companies are seeking “Social Licenses”, the local community’s acceptance and approval of their project or ongoing presence in the area. Often intangible and informal, social license can be realized through investment in timely and effective communication, meaningful dialogue, and a track record of ethical and responsible behavior. As the world becomes more and more environmentally and socially conscious, social license is increasingly being seen as a prerequisite to development. Do you have a plan in place?

Join us for this 60 minute webinar and learn what social licensees are, and their importance to business in the 21st century. You’ll hear expert advice on how to earn social license to operate, and public policy and legislative approaches to ensure success. We’ll explore how to use your current corporate responsibility framework as a starting point for engagement, communication, and collaboration with local communities, and discuss the project-specific action needed to earn and maintain the trust you need to get the job done.
