BITCI– The Sustainability Revolution

Tuesday 5 October 2021 - 07/10/21

Online

BITCI celebrates 21 years this year and we welcome you to join us for a series of thought–provoking conversations on what a new contract between business and society needs to look like.

With the recent IPCC report, the Black Lives Matter movement, and the greenwashing backlash; the role of business and its impact on the climate crisis and social inequality is in the spotlight. We need revolutionary thinking, and we need urgent action.

All three webinars are FREE to attend.

Day 1: Revolutionary Leadership – Tuesday, 5th October, 11am – 12 noon

During this session, we will look at the revolutionary leadership needed to drive radical change. Last year we heard from the ‘godfather of sustainability’, Paul Polman, where he asked CEOs “do you care?”  This October, we will hear from CEOs on their own philosophy on leadership and why CEOs need to be activist leaders and inspire others.

We will be asking a panel of CEOs in Ireland what radical transformation means for their sector and about the hurdles they are facing to make their companies truly sustainable. We will discuss the increasing levels of inequality in our society and ask our panel to reflect on the difficulties of marrying this inequality with the challenges to reach net–zero, and whether collective leadership could be part of the solution.

Confirmed Speakers:

  • Caroline Keeling, Group CEO, Keelings
  • Dave Murphy, Group CEO, PM Group
  • Deborah Threadgold, Country General Manager, IBM Ireland
  • Imelda Hurley, CEO, Coillte
  • Shay Walsh, Managing Director, BT Ireland

Day 2 : Revolution in Action – Wednesday 6th October, 11am – 12 noon

On the second day of the series, we will explore the revolution in action. This will be a practitioner level exploration and we will be joined by two leading sustainability practitioners who will share their own journeys and reflect on the evolution of CSR and sustainability.

 

BITCI’s Sustainability Strategy & Human Rights specialist, Darina Eades will be joined by Ben Ngobi, Global Procurement Sustainability Lead with Accenture, to discuss the topic of modern slavery mitigation and how this can be integrated into business strategy via policies, practices and continuous improvement measures.

Finally, we will hear from BITCI’s Sustainability Strategy expert, Johnny Meehan on what more needs to be done, how to focus on what matters, and how to take action using the right tools and available supports.

Confirmed Speakers:

  • Cathriona Fitzsimons, Group Head of Corporate Responsibility, PM Group
  • Sinéad Smith, Head of Responsible Business Dublin, A&L Goodbody
  • Ben Ngobi, Global Procurement Sustainability Lead, Accenture

Day 3: Revolutionary Conversations – Thursday 7th October 11am – 12 noon

Are we having revolutionary conversations? Consumers, activists, NGOs and the media are demanding more revolutionary action from business. With greenwashing in the spotlight and increasing calls for transparency from business when it comes to sustainability and diversity & inclusion, this session will explore the role of consumers and the media in driving change. We will hear from a leading journalist on the media’s role in sustainability and their ask of business.

Confirmed Speakers:

  • Jon Williams, Managing Director of News & Current Affairs, RTÉ
