Join us for an exciting to hear the new focus of The Prince's Mayday Network to address the '9 billion challenge' from Dr Alan Knight, Sustainability Director at Business in the Community. Register here.
What is the '9 billion challenge'?
With the global population set to increase by nearly 30% over the next 40 years, the challenge is: How do we deliver the UK contribution to 9 billion poverty free sustainable lifestyles in 2050?
The '9 billion challenge' requires answers to fundamental questions around our relationship with nature, how our weather works, how business works and how we inspire citizens to make their contribution. We need to shape companies, products and citizens' lifestyles to ensure we can deliver a sustainable future for our planet and its peoples.
The Business Case
Making your business more sustainable to address the UK contribution to the '9 billion challenge' makes good business sense. How can we help? The journey to 9 billion sustainable lifestyles requires new ways of thinking and working.
Business in the Community has 30 years experience challenging, engaging and supporting UK businesses to act responsibly, so we are well placed to help you get there. The Prince's Mayday Network is just one part of Business in the Community's overall offering.
Over the next few months Business in the Community will be shaping our new Sustainability meta-programme, designed to help UK businesses and consumers meet various aspects of the 9 billion challenge, and we want your input.
We want to hear from as many UK businesses as possible in terms of how best we (using campaigns like Mayday) can support you to make your business more sustainable.
