Overview & Background
Between April 2022 and January 2023, Sustainable Pathways collaborated with eBay and Small Business Britain to deliver a transformative, one-hour interactive workshop on sustainability. This collaboration was an integral component of the eBay Roadshow, offering attendees insights and actionable steps toward sustainable business practices.
The eBay Roadshow is a renowned event that attracts businesses, partners, and consumers. With the growing emphasis on sustainability in business and consumer practices, eBay recognised the need to incorporate a strong sustainability component into their roadshow.
The main objectives of the workshop were:
Educate attendees on the importance and benefits of sustainability in the modern business landscape.
Provide actionable steps and strategies businesses can adopt to improve their sustainability practices.
Enhance the overall value of the eBay Roadshow by addressing a topical and vital issue.
Gauge attendee interest and feedback on sustainability to inform future eBay initiatives.
Sustainable Pathways designed a bespoke, one-hour interactive workshop tailored to the eBay Roadshow audience. The workshop was structured as follows:
1. Introduction to sustainability: Context, importance, and the current global scenario.
2. Case studies showcasing businesses that have successfully integrated sustainability, reaping both environmental and financial benefits.
3. Interactive segment: Attendees were engaged through quizzes, polls, and discussions, allowing them to reflect on their current practices and identify areas of improvement.
4. Practical takeaways: A guide on actionable steps businesses can implement immediately.
