29th August 2018 Why sustainability matters for entrepreneurs

Forty years ago this summer, I moved to Newcastle and met David Irwin. Pretty quickly, we started talking about where the new jobs and economic activity would come from the North East. Our conversations led in the summer of 1980 to us giving up our jobs with multinational companies, and starting Project North East – now PNE Group. Our goal was through action-research and practical pilots, to test out new approaches to job and enterprise promotion. We wanted to create an enabling environment that would give people making their own jobs, the best possible chance of succeeding. Today, entrepreneurs wanting the best possible chance of success and aspiring to continue into the indefinite future, need to embed sustainability. In other words, to manage their social, environmental and economic impacts. Delighted to share an extract from All In by Chris Coulter, Mark Lee and I, on the PNE Group blog - specifically aimed at entrepreneurs.
