The IFB and Sustainability

The IFB and Sustainability

Continuing our series on Sustainability I am joined this week by Fiona Graham from the IFB.

We discuss a really important consultation that the UK Government are undertaking on audit and governance reforms. You can read more about that here: https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/restoring-trust-in-audit-and-corporate-governance-proposals-on-reforms 

If you would like to respond to the consultation you can do so by following this link: https://beisgovuk.citizenspace.com/business-frameworks/audit-and-corporate-governance-review

We also discuss the recent IFB conference and how many of the firms that both spoke and attended the conference have sustainability very high on their agenda. We also cover many of the challenges that families have in this area and the resources that are available to help.

Much of the focus around sustainability is on 'big' business and it can sometimes feel as though smaller businesses are left to their own devices. With this in mind the UK Government have launched a campaign called "Together for our Planet" and you can find out more about that here: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/calling-all-small-businesses-to-lead-the-charge-to-net-zero

If you missed the IFB's TEDx event you can catch all the sessions from that here: https://www.ifb.org.uk/resources/for-owners/tedxinstituteforfamilybusiness-family-business-as-a-force-for-good/‚Äč
