2023 has been a bumper year of over 70 events for B4 across our two communities in Oxfordshire and Shropshire with 2024 promising even more in terms of a bumper events calendar and some exciting new additions to the increasing list of benefits for B4 Members.
Up until January of this year B4 had enjoyed the support of a small group of Platinum Members who in turn enjoyed priority access to high-quality dinners at wonderful venues including Blenheim Palace, Saïd Business School, Nicholsons and Oxford University colleges.
At October’s B4 Sustainability Ecosystem members were unanimous that attaining net zero carbon emissions by 2050 was an important target in our drive to reduce our carbon footprint, address climate change and implement a sustainable business approach. However, while the environmental and social aspirations to ‘be better’ and ‘do good’ were clear, many did not know what the carbon footprint of their business was or felt unsure what the steps should be to convert strategy into direct actions. As session lead Toby Newman from environment consultants, Enistic, explained: “If it can’t be measured, it can’t be improved.”
The second B4 Platinum Quarterly held in the beautifully renovated Orangery at Blenheim Palace saw 80 business leaders from across Oxfordshire enjoying the superb hospitality of Blenheim Palace, the opportunity to make and build fantastic connections and hear from four great speakers.
