Free for members



Our discussion groups provide an opportunity to share learning, progress, challenges and questions with other members across the network who are on the same journey.

The use of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors to evaluate how far advanced organisations are with sustainability has recently increased significantly in the private sector and the same expectation is now extending to charities.  The understanding of (and interaction with) ESG is varied amongst charities, with many not having ESG associated strategy and others now referring to activity that aligns with ESG reporting.


This new network discussion group is for members that would like to learn more about Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) and/or are starting to develop or deliver a strategy in this area.  Areas for discussion include (and are not limited to):

·       What is ESG strategy and reporting?

·       Who is delivering ESG strategy and reporting?

·       Should my organisation be delivering ESG strategy and reporting?

·       What are the priorities, challenges, benefits and opportunities?

·       Target setting, monitoring and reporting

·       What information, and resources are available to support you understand ESG and help you decide if and how your organisation should engage with it?  What organisations can directly support your ESG development and delivery?

·       What support can the Fit for the Future develop to help you understand ESG and develop a strategy?


Once you have registered, we will be in touch to identify any specific topics you would like the group to focus on.  Where possible we will identify a suitable guest speaker.

After a group Q&A, the Fit for the Future team will lead you in smaller groups for you to share challenges, approaches, resources/tools used and lessons learnt.

Any member is welcome to attend, regardless of previous experience or knowledge on this topic.  The workshop will be of benefit to all network members, whatever your size and scope of operations/activity.  From organisations just starting off to those already delivering energy policy and strategy there will be lots to share and collaborate on, from identifying collective challenges to learning from other approaches.
