“A tip that I would probably share is taking a look and researching external frameworks to assist any business in creating more of a sustainability focus. An example that I would like to go over would probably be the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. These have really helped guide our sustainability strategy moving forward. And I think it would also help other businesses.”
