Becoming a Business with Sustainable Development Goals(SBG) Purpose
Presented by Hariett Madigan | Earth In a Nest

  • What are the SDGs?
  • Why should I care?
  • Who needs to get involved? Why should small businesses be involved? 
  • How can small business move towards Eco-Age friendly practices?
  • What are some simple ways to move toward Net Zero Waste?
  • When and where should you start?

An interesting statistic! 97.7% of all business in Canada is small business. Just think about the difference small business could make moving toward more sustainable practices AND, leading by example, then sharing our changes with our customers! Small businesses can be the influencers as we navigate climate change. It just makes good business sense to be a business with purpose!

The value of one business, the power of many businesses working together to be socially, and economically profitable within environmental constraints!

We created Earth in a Nest Collaborative based on this statistic and the SDGs to bring small businesses together to help each other. Collaboration and networking.

 “The value of one business or organization to make a difference won’t be enough but the power of a collective of many businesses and organizations, passing their commitment on to their customers, working together, the collective one, for net zero impact, is a game changer.”
