How to Use Your Small Business as a Force For Good!

August 7 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


As a busy entrepreneur with a small environmental footprint, why should you care about “sustainability”?

  • According to Hamilton Chamber of Commerce, attracting and retaining qualified talent is one of the largest challenges facing small businesses in Hamilton.
  • As your business grows, your workplace culture and strategic vision become the glue that keeps everyone working towards the same common goals.
  • Brand reputation is more important to today’s consumer than ever before, and information about your company exists on multiple platforms, some of which are not within your control.
  • You don’t have staff dedicated to monitoring environmental regulations and changes in commodity prices, leaving you exposed to risk.

Join us to learn how a sustainability lens can remedy these small business concerns. Let Rafiq Dhanji, an experienced sustainability professional and SBI Program Manager of Sustainable Hamilton Burlington, show you how to grow your purpose and grow your profit. There is no one-sized-fits-all solution as your business is as unique as you are, but there is a simple, standard approach and free tools available. Rafiq and Sustainable Hamilton Burlington will show you the way.
