Communicating Sustainability 

Today's stakeholders, such as consumers, and buyers, expect companies to go beyond compliance and define how they're solving important global concerns ranging from climate change to modern slavery. Minimising your impact is no longer sufficient. You must demonstrate how you contribute to a brighter future for people and the environment.

On November 30th, Bord Bia hosted a virtual webinar in partnership with Havas, attended by marketing and communications professionals from across sectors and all size of companies from our Irish food, drink and horticulture membership base.
