Deeds not Words!
How we can change the world through responsible business.

Amanda will explore the positive effect that we and the companies we work for can have on the world around us and how we could, and should, be doing more – in areas such as diversity and inclusion, healthy ecosystems, health and well-being and net zero carbon emissions.
