Stockport Town Centre

Business leaders and key decision makers from across Stockport and South Manchester will gather in October to attend the region’s first One+All Sustainability In Action Summit, ahead of COP26 and at a critical time in the global mission to avert the climate emergency.

One+All, a Certified B Corporation and a leading supplier of schoolwear, has teamed up with Marketing Stockport to deliver the region’s first Sustainability In Action Summit (6 October 2021, The Light Cinema, Stockport).

This inaugural event is part of the Planet Mark’s Zero Carbon Tour, an eight-month national tour in the UK’s first “Carbon Battle Bus”. The tour aims to spread the word about environmental strategies adopted by local businesses, and the net zero carbon message.

The packed half-day Summit is a rallying cry to the region’s business leaders to join the Race To Zero, through powerful real-life case studies that showcase best practice and highlight the commercial and social benefits of sustainable business practices.

One+All’s Sustainability In Action Summit is the key Stockport event on the national Zero Carbon Tour organised by the Planet Mark, which helps organisations to embrace sustainability and reduce their carbon footprint.

Donald Moore, Chair of One+All, comments, “We support the Race to Zero campaign because all businesses can play a role in a zero carbon recovery, creating better jobs and building inclusive, sustainable growth. Our Sustainability In Action event puts the spotlight on these critical environmental and economic issues, inspiring business leaders to follow our example and take immediate action.”

Helen White, Director of Marketing Stockport, comments, “Through our work with One+All, we’ve become better informed and acutely aware that businesses must act now to tackle the climate emergency. Whatever the size of an organisation, there are changes that can be made to protect the future of our planet. By attending the Sustainability In Action Summit, I hope many Stockport businesses will be inspired to take those first critical steps.”

The Summit includes presentations from Planet Mark, business and sustainability experts, Stockport Council and Transport for Greater Manchester.

There will be insights and discussions around the Race to Zero campaign, the impact of switching to ESG pensions, recycling e-waste, energy efficiency measures, benefits of becoming a B Corporation, and a sustainability and transport update for Stockport.

The Sustainability In Action Summit will deliver an inspiring and actionable half-day event to accelerate organisations’ sustainability strategies, whether they’re taking first steps towards a sustainable business or want to gain new ideas and knowledge from local business leaders.

The One+All Sustainability In Action Summit is free to attend and runs from 8.30am until 1.30pm on 6 October 2021.
