Urbano Network is London’s leading pan-sector independent business network with over 5,000 Member & Associate Companies, ranging from boutique practices and SMEs, to corporates and PLCs.

Urbano Speaker breakfast events explore interesting themes and feature great speakers, where the the focus is on networking and creating connections and opportunities. You always meet a diverse range of businesses and their representatives in a lively session of informal but facilitated networking.

This event will welcome speakers from Business in the Community (BITC) discussing the latest findings in their Responsible Business Tracker Report. The Tracker is a measurement tool designed to enable a business to measure their performance as a responsible business. 

Aligned to the UN’s Global Goals, the Tracker’s insights present a snapshot of how responsible UK business is today, from medium-sized business to those with significant scale and power. The Tracker brings in aspirational goals and introduces the ‘new possible’. It shows us how far we still must go to play our part in ensuring the Global Goals are met by 2030 and it shows us how much more we have to learn. 

Amy Brimmicombe from BITC's Benchmarks, Insights & Innovation Team who co-authored this year’s Responsible Business Tracker Insights Report will introduce the first pilot results. She will be joined by one of their Issue Experts to explore challenges drawn from key areas: Leadership, Materiality, Wellbeing, Diversity & Inclusion, Healthy Ecosystems, Net Zero Carbon and Circular Economy.

This event is relevant to ALL industries and businesses. 64 companies participated in the pilot covering a range of sectors including legal, technology, manufacturing, construction, media & broadcast, retail, public services, education, food & drink, waste management and utilities.

The Tracker will launch in September 2019 incorporating feedback from the pilot. This means this event is perfectly timed to provide a unique and vauable learning forum. It is also chance to meet and network with other similiar motivated and responsibly charged businesses.
