Speaker: Anja Jones, Managing Director, AJT
How can we become more sustainable translation businesses, both socially and environmentally? Where do we start? And how do we measure progress? In this session, Anja Jones shares how working towards becoming a B Corporation provided the framework to steer her translation company towards a more sustainable future, and to successfully balance profit with purpose.
