Conference summary

Amell Amatino, Founder of MAINTENANT, who works with companies and organisations of all shapes and sizes in an advisory role, highlighted the importance of sustainability incorporated at the heart of your business. And while the scale of the problem is clear, our negative impact on the planet is still growing at unprecedented levels.

She pointed to solutions in the circular economy, which uses less resources, reuses, recycles, and seeks out sustainable design – as opposed to the linear economy, which takes resources and creates waste and pollution. Frameworks for businesses and organisations include ISO2600 and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
