Communities / Sustainability

BusinessRiver curates and manages business communities across some 25 and growing industries, professions and functions. We help individuals and businesses in these communities to exchange knowledge, develop opportunities and solve challenges through providing timely relevant business information, networking opportunities and benchmarking services.

Our Green Community is over 10 years old and has been carefully developed to provide Irish business with a range of fora to develop the sustainability agenda in their organisations. It is active through the following channels:

Green Awards – the green business and sustainability awards programme for Ireland’s business community. The event is staged annually attracting major business for whom sustainability is an actionable strategy central to measured success. The awards are judged by experts from all over the world and have created in their wake a network of green business champions and green enablers during its 10 years of success.


Green Thought Leader Panels – small, exclusive, invitation only gatherings for peers, peer-leaders and solution providers to discuss highly focussed agendas focussing on business sustainability.


Round Table Programmes – peer led, invite only, private gatherings with community developed agendas and intense single-subject focus


Insights Stream – we collaborate with third-level, solution providers, green community peers and leaders to source, publish and distribute the latest thinking, data and information to our approved community members.


BusinessRiver believes that solution providers wanting to work closely with the business communities should move from the ‘buyer and seller’ model to a ‘peer and peer’ strategy. To do this solution providers need to be viewed as peers within the community they serve. If you are a solution provider then the journey from ‘Seller’ to ‘Peer’ is one that you have to take.

BusinessRiver can take you on it and help your business become more successful as a result.
