Changing the present to aid the future is top of mind for many. We all know how important sustainability is and that meaningful sustainability can change our future. We also know it’s no longer a choice for business – but a mandate. However not all small to medium size business have the resources and knowledge to respond.
The Parnell Business Association regularly hosts webinars to educate and inform businesses and the people in them, on how to practically implement some sustainable actions, as small incremental changes DO make a difference.
From workspace, to home space. Implementing sustainable practices is a choice. The more we know, the more we can do.

6th Oct 2022, Corporate Volunteering. If personal ethics play a part in who you choose to work for, the October sustainability seminar was for you.
Guest speakers Michelle Blau – Fair Food’s as Chief Executive and Kim Sinfield, Funding & Relationships manager, Habitat for Humanity Northern lead the conversation. Both Fair Foods and Habitat for Humanity Northern have strong corporate volunteering opportunities for employees, providing their volunteers an opportunity to make a life-changing impact in their communities.
Why volunteer? You may ask? Well, Gen Z and millennial staff expect their employers to be authentic about their commitment to sustainability. Nearly half – 49% of Gen Zs – surveyed by Deloitte said that their personal ethics have played a role in their career choices. Offering staff, a meaningful connection to a local community climate group through volunteering together is a great way to retain staff. With the rise of work from home, having a team-building day that gives back brings a team closer together.
We invite you to enjoy this seminar, in what is an important conversation to be a part of for all companies and their employees.
