BMG reviews the success of Sustainability LIVE conference

We look back at some of the highlights from Sustainability LIVE and look forward to the next EXPO to take place at the Business Design Centre in London

Environmental, social and governance (ESG); circular economies; decarbonisations. These are some of the hot topics that we encountered at Sustainability LIVE. Reflecting back on the inaugural hybrid conference, BizClik Media Group hosted one of the first sustainability events to follow the COP26 Climate Change Conference and received a great turnout. 

As a sister event to the previous live events hosted by the company, its aim, alongside Sustainability Magazine, is to create a community around the subject and bring important discussions to the forefront of business. 

Industries spoke for themselves at Sustainability LIVE, as we welcomed a whole host of speakers to Tobacco Dock, London, to share their insights from years of business and commitment to initiatives, such as net-zero emissions and decarbonisation, carbon neutrality, ESG investments and reporting, as well as diversity, equity, and inclusion. 

 Sustainability insight from a multitude of industries 

Throughout the two-day event, attendees heard from speakers from various corporations and, as expressed in the video, they thoroughly enjoyed meeting people—as some of them were yet to experience presenting and networking in person since COVID-19. 

Jennifer Bisceglie, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer at Interos, said: “It’s a great event! It’s very professionally done, and it’s wonderful to be able to network with leaders from around the world.”

Steve Smith, Head of Global Marketing: Energy Management Thought Leadership and Communications at Schneider Electric, said: “It’s superb. I hadn’t expected the volume of people that we’ve seen today, so it’s great to be back, physically meeting people.” 

Adrian Fleming, Director - ESG & Sustainability Reporting Software at Diligent, said: “We’ve had some interesting discussion in each of the conversations this morning that are evolving the way that we think.” 

Join the Sustainability LIVE EXPO 

We’re not done yet. Sustainability LIVE will return to London later this year for the first Sustainability LIVE EXPO, taking place at the Business Design Centre and will bring together leaders and companies from across the globe in September 2022.
