Investment for Idealism

Responsible investing can deliver strong returns as well as a better world. Climate transition presents an historic investment opportunity. Instead of saying ‘how are we going to pay for this’ – should we be asking 'what’s the price for not changing now?

Can the Beautiful Game Be Good?

It's no longer just locker room chat - the world has woken up to the enormous power of professional sports to drive change (or provoke debate) in our societies. What needs to happen for sport to be a permanent force for good - for fans, for players and communities?

    • Real Purpose
    • Sport

    Farmers are on the front line of climate change. Changes to our production methods and diets are essential to address climate change – so how do we protect the agricultural industry and the planet at the same time?

The Good Business Festival is driving a movement that believes in the power of business to affect positive change.

Our 3-day ‘in person’ festival is live in the Liverpool City Region from 7th to the 9th of July. We’re taking over unique venues across the city region, pairing thought-provoking, action-driven talks with a full social programme, covering art, culture, wellness and fun.

From climate change and diversity to food and fashion, we’ll be joined by our incredible line-up of industry experts to think big, explore real-time solutions and power transformation for good. Whether you run your own business, work in some-else’s or just want to do better for our planet and humanity, you will find something for you.

We believe that the only way to drive change is to make sure absolutely everyone has a seat at the table. Now more than ever the future is unpredictable, so join us live in July, to change business and society for good.

The Good Business Festival is passionately non-exclusive. It’s not about what you do or who you know. It’s not about agreeing on everything all of the time. It’s about leaning, sharing knowledge and experience and wanting to be a part of the global good business movement.
