The Sustainable Business Alliance exists to help organisations integrate sustainable practices into day-to-day business.

About us

Founded in 2023,  SBA works with academic and consultancy partners with expertise covering environmental, social and governance topics, to provide training, support and tools for businesses starting out on their sustainability journeys.

With increasing pressure on businesses to meet regulatory, investor and customer requirements and a proliferation of standards, frameworks and initiatives, it may seem that achieving sustainability is becoming more complex and confusing. SBA makes the road to sustainability easier by helping you focus on the areas that are most relevant and important to your business.

Our Sustainable Business Roadmap

Our Sustainable Business Roadmap offers a simple 5-point plan to help businesses navigate their sustainability journeys. Start by taking our ESG Self Assessment to find out your ESG rating. Join the alliance to access talks and webinars and connect with likeminded businesses. Improve your ESG rating by joining the Business Towards Sustainability Programme and finding tools and support provided by SBA and our delivery partners. Become an accredited member to promote your ESG score and demonstrate your progress to your stakeholders.
