Innovate Conference 2023: Sustainability

Join us for this informative South Canterbury Sustainability event.

The What, Why and How for Business.

  • What sustainability really means
  • Waste and the circular economy
  • Procurement and how to get started

In an era of growing climate change disruption with extreme and unpredictable weather events, we have entered a new reality where sustainability has quickly become the topic on everybody's minds.

At the 2023 Innovate Conference you don’t have to be a sustainability professional. You don’t have to know anything about sustainability. We will look at the why and the how to kick-start your journey and provide practical tools and resources to help you take action.

Discover the power of sustainability in business, engage in thought provoking presentations with industry expert Dr Logan Williams and our other informative and knowledgeable speakers.

Learn practical strategies to help you implement sustainable practices and network with like minded business owners and professionals.

Engage with professionals, experts, and business leaders and learn more about how business is aiming for a better future with more sustainable solutions.

Join us and take your business, your team and yourself on a more sustainable journey!

Keynote Speaker: Dr Logan Williams – Environmental Crisis, what it means to be sustainable.
