Sustainability Day

Workshop: How Any Startup Can Be Sustainable: Understanding Your Footprint

Today’s startup is tomorrow’s unicorn: but what does scaling in a world of dwindling resources, climate change and changing social landscapes really mean? And how can startups be a force for good? Come learn about how startups can start applying sustainability to their business, no matter what their business may be.

Why are we doing this and what do we want to achieve?

We want to bring together the startup community, not just impact startups, to learn about how sustainability affects them and the baby steps they can take to be more sustainable. Understanding how your new product or service impacts the world is part of responsible business, and if you don’t embed sustainability into your thinking from an early stage, it’ll be much more difficult to pivot later on. We want startups to come out of the event inspired to take action and ask themselves hard questions about sustainability in startups.

Who is this for?

Pure Growth Innovations and Maria 01 have joined forces to bring sustainability to the startup masses. Not just for impact startups, the two-part event will look for practical ways that all startup teams can start taking steps towards sustainability.

Why is this relevant?

Are you using materials, energy, server space or do you have a team? What are the things you need to ensure you will continue to have these resources and that your product or service makes the world better, rather than worse? Responsibility isn’t just a corporate luxury - it’s quickly becoming a necessary element of business strategy. Thinking about sustainability in your startup can not only cut risks, but make you more competitive in the long run.

What will happen?

This morning session will focus on understanding carbon footprints and how to apply this thinking to your startup. The session takes place at Starter Restaurant inside Maria 01. You can buy your own breakfast for this session!
