The Tortoise Responsible Business Summit

office women 1120*570

Thursday 14th October 2021 | 8.30am – 1.30pm

We’re proud to be a knowledge partner of The Tortoise Responsible Business Summit, taking place on 14th October 2021.

Successful businesses need to put people and the planet on a par with profit. That much we know. Now’s the time to separate rhetoric from reality. Join us for a day of conversations to examine who’s making change and who’s just talking about it.

The summit will reveal the latest rankings of the 2021 Tortoise Responsibility 100 Index which was set up to discern exactly how much companies are actually doing versus what they are saying they’ll do, on critical issues such as climate change, justice and equality.

CEOs, academics, experts and public figures will use the latest data from the Index to reveal real life best (and worst) practice, to equip business leaders with clear guidance that will drive positive momentum and ask, can business close the accountability gap and keep up with its commitments?

ThinkIn: How Covid-19 changed the game on business responsibility
Thursday 14th October 10.00am – 10.50am

We’re excited to be hosting a ThinkIn as part of the summit. Katja Hall, Chief Corporate Affairs and Marketing Officer at Capita will be joined by Claire Tracey, Chief Strategy and Sustainability Officer at Nationwide Building Society.

The pandemic has transformed what it means to be a responsible business. From mental health to hybrid working, the expectations on companies – from both employees and from wider society – have changed forever. In this fast-moving post Covid-19 world, how can businesses stay on the front foot in terms of responsibility? What are the key conversations that leaders need to be having? And how far could some innovations – such as hybrid working – help businesses perform well in other areas, such as cutting carbon and boosting employee engagement and creativity?
