What role can entrepreneurs and innovative business models play in changing our unsustainable habits of consumption?

SDG 12 calls on us to "Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns”. Yet, our current consumption patterns are demanding too much from our planet are jeopardising our long-term ability to flourish.

As we head into the Christmas season, this event will explore what role entrepreneurs have in changing our unsustainable practices, habits and values through innovative business models and new ideas.

Speakers include:

Safia of CupClub – a returnable packaging service designed to hold both and cold drinks, reducing single-use plastic packaging by nearly 50%.

Charlotte of Know The Origin – driving change in the fashion industry, using transparent and traceable supply chain from 'seed to garment'. Such 'style with nothing to hide' encourages both responsible production and sustainable consumption behaviours.

Catherine of 28 Well Hung – serving up sustainably-produced meat from farms in the UK. They do so by using techniques to manage grazing in a way that regenerates the soil and increases the biodiversity of the land.

Fast Forward 2030 is a network of entrepreneurs who believe that in order to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), entrepreneurs need to incorporate them into their business models.
