Background to Start and The IBM Start Summits

Start is a national initiative, established by The Prince’s Charities Foundation and aims to show what a sustainable future could look like. IBM is one of the founding partners of Start, and the exclusive partner for business-to-business engagement. The IBM Start Summits have formed part of the Start initiative and recognised that sustainability needs to be economically viable as well as socially and environmentally desirable. Since 2010 there have been three Summits and one Start Jam, all of which have helped to identify some of the challenges ahead, considered how to overcome these and explored opportunities to allow organisations to progress towards a sustainable future.
