Kai to Compost - an example of a sustainable business practice
The conference, organised by the Sustainable Business Network (SBN) and co-sponsored by the Council, will be held at Te Papa on Wednesday 4 September.
SBN’s CEO Rachel Brown says sustainable businesses are ones that see profit as something that benefits communities, employees and the natural environment - as well as shareholders.
“Conference participants will explore issues, exchange ideas and take away practical solutions to improve and transform their businesses or organisations, create community partnerships and move towards a sustainable future.”
The conference features a range of national and international speakers, including John Elkington - the global authority on Corporate Social Responsibility who coined the term ‘triple bottom line’ - via video.
Catherine Leining, Principal Programme Advisor in the Council’s Policy team, will speak at the conference about the Council’s Smart Energy Capital initiative, profiled in Our Wellington a fortnight ago.
Sustainability is a concept that’s applied across the Council’s operations including:
- encouraging waste minimisation, recycling and composting
- managing development and growth in the city
- energy efficiency
- supporting public and active transport
- managing the city’s assets and finances.
