It’s a question even David Cameron has been asking recently: how can we nurture ‘responsible capitalism’ that respects our environment and delivers on social goals?
It’s the topic at the heart of our latest report, "Money Growing Trees: Sustainable business opportunities in Kings Heath". It’s based on 26 interviews with local businesspeople, who told me how they make their business sustainable and what they’d like to improve. The report identifies ways in which we can all work together with local businesses to help them achieve their sustainability goals.
So if you’re interested in what Kings Heath’s business community is up to and how you can get involved, come along to Kitchen Garden Cafe on 17th May at 6:30pm for a short slideshow presentation to celebrate the launch of this report – free entry, all welcome.
