Event description


Please note: this event is run by the Small Business Development Corporation for small business owners in Western Australia only.

Many small businesses seek more sustainable practices, but are unsure of how and when to start corporate social responsibility planning. This session will help you to develop responsible policies and plans for a more sustainable business.

While most business owners are committed to reducing waste and having ethical supply chains, developing and implementing corporate social responsibility strategies that promote sustainability can still be a challenge. This session will help you to understand how you, your business and community can use the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals to build your policies and plans. It will also explain the circular economy, and how businesses can commit to reducing waste and reusing resources.

This topic covers:

  • An overview of the circular economy

  • Business value in a circular economy and opportunities for new businesses

  • Product lifecycle and longer-life products

  • Remanufacture, recapture value on a product or component level

  • Recycle opportunities and reducing waste

This session is for people:

  • with an established business

  • who have implemented few or no corporate social responsibility strategies

  • with an interest in introducing sustainability practices into their business

The facilitator for this topic, Belmont Business Enterprise Centre, is a not-for-profit community based organisation established in 1994 to assist in the growth and development of small business. Their presenter of this topic is a highly sought after productivity consultant and business coach who conducts training programs for a range of private and government organisations.

This session is presented by the SBDC, the only agency in the Western Australian Government dedicated to helping small business. In fact, we've been providing practical support to small business owners for more than 30 years.

Important booking information

You are limited to two tickets per booking (you can of course make more than one booking).

We will be emailing you with important information on how to find workshop locations and what you need to bring, if it is a face-to-face event. If you are attending an online workshop you will receive instructions and a link on how to join and important information to ensure your device is suitable. Therefore, if you are booking for more than one person, please ensure you provide each person's email address.

To book for larger groups, please contact us on 133 140.

You can cancel your booking up to 24 hours before the workshop starts. Even for free sessions we would appreciate you cancelling if you cannot attend so another small business owner can take your place. For paid sessions, no refunds will be issued within 24 hours of the scheduled start time.

Additional information for online workshop sessions

Please check your computer's suitability for online workshops, including its sound quality, browser, internet bandwidth and speed and video plugins (if required) before the start of the online workshop session. Camera and microphone capabilities are recommended to interact with online workshops.

Our online workshops are run as live, interactive sessions, similar to the format of our face-to-face sessions. For this reason, there is a limited number of tickets per session so our presenters can adequately interact with, and respond to, attendees. Recordings of these live sessions are not available if you do not attend the live event time.

Additional information for face-to-face workshop sessions

No, you don't need to bring your printed ticket.

We value inclusion for clients requiring disability access and our workshops are delivered in a variety of buildings and locations. If you would like further information about accessing a particular workshop please use the contact button at the end of this page to send us your query.
