Startup Breakfast Club: How to Embed Sustainability into your Startup Strategy

Successful businesses balance creativity and innovation with sustainability.

Come join us next month at Startup Breakfast Club where you will hear all about How to Embed Sustainability into your Startup Strategy. First, you will hear from Gareth Brooks, Group CFO & NZ COO at Eagle Protect and Caroline Thalund, Founder of Startup Sustainability 360 (S360).

Gareth found his tribe at Eagle, a business focused on food safety through the lens of people and planet for long term profit. His role is to run the NZ operation and obtain funding for the group as they grow rapidly in the US and APAC markets on their mission to save the world one glove at a time.

At this event, Gareth will present about why Eagle chose to become NZ’s first B Corp back in 2012, the benefits of this move and some ideas that might help for your business to have a more positive impact on the environment and wider community.

Next, you’ll hear from Caroline Thalund, Founder and Business Sustainability Specialist of tech startup – S360. Caroline is a highly experienced sustainability specialist and an innovative entrepreneur. With a background in science and communication and over 20 years of working in the sustainability space, her passion is to make sustainability simple for everyone.
