Net Impact Approaches 2018 will be held on Tuesday 22nd May 2018 at the same venue as lasty year's event, 15 Hatfields, London. 

More than 100 delegates attended the inaugural Net Impact Approaches conference in May 2017, from organisations including: Anglian Water, Anglo American, Balfour Beatty, BASF, BBOP, FMO Bank, Forum for the Future, Fujitsu, Green Investment Bank, IUCN JLL, Kering, KPMG, LafargeHolcim, Mulberry, Natural Capital Coalition, Nestlé, Northumbrian Water, Olam, PwC, Ramboll Environ, Rockwool, Shell, SIG Combibloc, Social Value International, The Crown Estate, Total, UNEP WCMC, Vicat, Virgin, WBCSD and WWF.

Feedback was excellent, so we’re expecting a bigger and even broader audience in 2018. You can read a summary of the 2017 conference here.

Once again, the ambition will be to bring the different communities involved in net impact approaches together, and encourage more organisations to adopt such approaches.  The key themes for this year include:

  • Getting started and making the business case
  • Measuring impacts – techniques and tools - and linking site/product level impacts to a corporate level 
  • Aligning approaches
  • Processes and sources for obtaining data
  • Accuracy and assurance needs for monetary valuation
  • Links with SDGs, Science Based Targets & the Circular Economy
  • Linking/integrating environmental and social aspects

We’re grateful to the Natural Capital Coalition, Forum for the Future, Social Value UK, the Business and Biodiversity Offsets Programme(BBOP) and WBCSD for being conference affiliates.  Representatives of each of these organisations will be speaking and highlighting recent and planned activities on the topic, in particular covering key advances and linkages with other communities.
