Sage reinforces its commitment to a more sustainable future for customers at Transform 2024

Attendees will be able to uncover paths to more sustainable and profitable businesses in tailored guidance sessions.

Atlanta (14 February, 2024)Sage, the leader in accounting, financial, HR and payroll technology for small and mid-sized businesses, is strengthening its commitment to help SMBs get to net-zero at Transform 2024, its annual gathering of Sage Intacct customers, partners and industry experts, taking place from February 26-29 in Las Vegas. 

Sage’s research, year over year, has confirmed that small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) recognise the business benefits of being more sustainable, but often lack the knowledge, funds and tools to make progress on their ambitions. This is why one of Sage’s key goals as a business is to help SMBs on their path to sustainability and resilience: the company has launched a number of initiatives to that effect, from its Masterclass sessions and Sustainability Content Hub launched to facilitate education and discussion on these topics, to advocating to governments and industry bodies for increased financial support and easier reporting standards for SMEs.

In a first for Transform, Sage will bake its Sustainability & Society initiatives into the event, not only offering attending business leaders counsel and support on how to become more sustainable, but also giving them opportunities to join fundraising and volunteering programs benefitting local communities in Las Vegas. 

The flagship effort will be a series of sessions called “Let’s Talk Sustainability,” where attendees can sign-up for 1:1 conversations with Sage’s Sustainability Strategy & Execution Director Surinder Sond. The sessions are designed to help attendees further their sustainability ambitions – whether they relate to net-zero goals, supply chain issues, or packaging and materials use. Sond, with nearly two decades of experience in formulating and executing sustainability strategies across industries, will help attendees identify existing knowledge, tools and talent to tackle any blocks in their journey; and ensure attendees walk away with actionable steps they can take post-conference to become more sustainable, no matter their size, industry or progress thus far.

Sond said: “Sustainability can often feel daunting, so we’re excited to play our part in demystifying this, and meeting customers wherever they are on their sustainability journey.  I hope to speak with customers about a variety of topics – because no business’ path or obstacles will be the same – to help them make smart, sustainable, profitable choices for their businesses.” 

Transform 2024 will also support Sage Foundation efforts by rallying attendees for volunteering activities. In partnership with Get Outdoors Nevada, the Foundation will arrange for conference attendees to be able to contribute to a habitat restoration project in Red Rocks State Park. Attendees  will also be able to help Foundation’s efforts to assemble 500 solar car kits, which will be donated to Communities in Schools Nevada, aiding crucial, hands-on STEM programs in their schools. Those interested in making donations will also be able to do so – every time attendees refill the reusable bottle provided onsite, they can trigger a donation to ‘charity: water’ by scanning the QR code. 

To sign-up for the “Let’s Talk Sustainability” sessions, attendees can visit the Sustainability Kiosk in the Hub on Level 1. To participate in Sage Foundation activities, attendees can stop by the Sage Foundation area, within the terrace ballroom in The Hub.
