2nd September Agenda
11:30am – 12:30pm – ‘The Environmental Impact of Digital’
Did you know that the global emissions from our digital lifestyles are on a par with the entire aviation industry’s fuel? And that was BEFORE lockdown! There are direct impacts from the energy used in every internet search, email sent and video streamed, as well as the indirect impacts to manufacturer the equipment you’re using. We may have seen a 95% reduction in aviation emissions over the last few months, but it’s been coupled with an exponential increase in teleconferencing and streaming.
In this session we’ll hear more about impacts of this silent emitter, and will discuss ‘quick wins’ to help you reduce your Scope 1 digital impact at home and in your business; also touching on some Scope 2 and 3 reductions too.

Ben Clifford – MD, Erjjio Studios – Planet-friendly web design & hosting
Anna Hughes – Campaigner, Adventurer & founder of Flight Free UK
13:30pm – 14:30pm – ‘Social Justice is everyone’s business’
Racism has built every level of our society in ways that might surprise you. Systems have been set up across the world to give people of lighter skin colour more wealth, employment, education, housing, healthcare, and criminal justice. The world of business has been built on these systems, so dismantling and rebuilding them must be high on every company’s agenda. Not being racist is no longer an option; we must all be actively anti-racist.
We can only solve other global problems like pandemics and the climate crisis if we all have social justice; this is why the SDG’s are interconnected. In this session, we will not tiptoe around uncomfortable subjects. We’ll talk about issues like unconscious bias, privilege, white fragility, intersectionality, and systemic racism. And we’ll discuss the actions every business can take to be anti-racist.
