Sustainability Summit – Outline Brief

The UKAA is holding a Sustainability Summit  on Friday 12th March. This will be a one day virtual event running with sessions running from 9.30am – 2:15 pm, followed by a networking event. We are aiming to attract 300 people across the day and to make the event free of charge (funded by sponsorship) or at a minimal charge.

A portion of any money raised  will be donated to LandAid to support their virtual sleepout which will be held the night before the summit LandAid asks you to SleepOut to help out from Home this March | LandAid – the property industry charity

  • Community (People related issues) –customers and employees mental health & wellbeing, EDI, customer attitudes and aspirations for sustainability, homelessness
