It can be quite intimidating to know how and where to start and so in this episode I speak with Andrew Bryson who is Head of Business Transformation at FBN International.

What is Sustainability?

According to the UN’s own website, sustainability is defined as

“meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” 

In the show Andrew and I discuss the joint initiative between The UN and FBN-i. This has been called Family Business for Sustainable Development and you can read loads more about it here.

To help family businesses as much as possible there are ‘Sustainable Development Goals’ that you can commit to and use as a way to focus your minds on what you want to address. 

In addition “The Pledge” focusses on four key areas: 

  • Sustainable Growth 
  • Environmental Stewardship 
  • Social Inclusion 
  • Good Governance

We discuss what this means for you and your business in the episode.
