Interface Webinar: Business for Good: Balancing Purpose with Profit in a Post-Covid Scotland

JoinDr Miles Weaver and Dr Hock Tan, from Edinburgh Napier’s Business School on July 30th for Purpose-driven Organisations, will discuss that many businesses to emerge stronger in a post-covid Scotland will be purpose-driven. Using business as a force for good.

This webinar, hosted by Lorraine Thomson, who heads up Interface's Highlands and Islands team, examines the power of ‘purpose’ and the opportunities for SME’s in embracing the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to create Sustainable Value (for all relevant stakeholders). ‘Profit’ is an output, not a ‘purpose’. Business exists beyond making money and maximising shareholder value. There is a growing consensus that businesses that place “purpose beyond profit” can generate greater returns. What does this mean for SME’s and where are the opportunities? We will first seek to understand what is meant by creating sustainable value and the power of purpose. Followed by taking an overview of the SDG Action Manager to help you to identify opportunities for growth while making an impact across environmental, social and governance landscape.
