Event: Leading a Sustainable Workforce


A special sustainability conference to support businesses in Cornwall is being held next month.

The ‘Leading a Sustainable Workforce Conference’ is being held at Nancarrow Farm, Truro on Thursday March 16.

Its purpose is to share the benefits of developing a sustainable workforce and how these could add value to businesses.

It will showcase how to support sustainable workforce challenges by exploring how you can develop people and profit whilst still protecting the planet (triple bottom line), and addressing challenges with recruitment and developing a sustainable, engaged workforce.

Headline speakers include Jo Fairley, serial entrepreneur and co-founder of luxury chocolate brand Green & Black’s, and Chris Hines MBE, co-founder of Surfers Against Sewage and previous sustainability director at the Eden Project.

In addition, local business leaders will also share their journey of business growth and leading a sustainable workforce.

Arca project coordinator, Lisa Lawrence, said: “We are excited for this conference. A skilled workforce is critical to a sustainable economy, we are looking forward to hearing how businesses can benefit from introducing or improving sustainable practices.”

The day will include a networking lunch using produce from the farm, with an optional farm tour after lunch. For more information, click here.
