These Workshops will provide you with the background information you need on key sustainability topics. 
Over the six part series, Jonathan Pooch (DETA) will help you develop your own Sustainability Roadmap for your business as well as increase your sustainability literacy and knowledge.

Each Workshop will focus on a key pillar of sustainability.  Together we will assess and discuss how relevant this is to your business, ‘what good looks like’ and what we need to do to take steps towards where you want to get to. 

The focus of the Workshops will be on practical, implementable change anchored to best practice sustainability.  Key focus areas for the sessions will include:
