Measure What Matters 101: Free Business Workshops

Presented by The Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC)* and Thriving Vancouver (a project of the Vancouver Economic Commission)**.

This free workshop is designed to help Vancouver businesses measure their impact by performing an audit of their business practices in areas related to areas such as social responsibility and environmental footprint.

At the workshop, businesses will be introduced to the Measure What Matters tool – a free, confidential digital platform tailored to the B Corp principals. Knowledgeable experts will be on-site to guide participants through the questionnaire. Completing Measure What Matters can help a business save money, increase employee and customer loyalty, shrink their environmental footprint, and make a more positive impact in their community.

There will be an hour-long Q&A period after the conclusion of the formal session. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided.
