With society increasingly calling for businesses to act more sustainably, the need for - and opportunity in - taking a leadership role in this area is greater than ever. This event highlights the know-how and experience of those already sustainably transforming their business models, products, and people.
ALL OF US WANT A MORE SUSTAINABLE WORLD
It’s increasingly clear to people around the world that humanity, as a whole, needs to think and act in a more sustainable way. It’s also clear we don’t have time to waste. That’s why involving businesses in this challenge is so critical: because we - as a group - have the resources, people and expertise to create positive change.
This was the drive behind us creating the Leaders in Business Sustainability initiative in 2019. And this year it’s time to turn talking into ACTION!
We need to harness what we learn from each other in these sessions and drive it forward in our own businesses, communities and societies.
DRIVING POSITIVE CHANGE
The simple fact is that A MORE SUSTAINABLE WORLD and MORE SUSTAINABLE BUSINESSES are two sides of the same coin: one drives the other. The more we invest in developing one side, the more the other gains in reaction - a true win-win situation.
And the smartest business leaders have recognised the opportunity within this: that those organisations who most successfully integrate sustainability into everything they do will be the ones to prevail in the coming decades. In the efficiencies they generate, the goodwill they stimulate and the profitability they achieve. Sustainability isn’t just a good idea. Or just a good thing to do. It makes good business sense too.
SUSTAINABLE BUSINESSES ARE BUILT ON SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS PLANS, PRODUCTS AND PEOPLE
That’s why we are so committed to the THREE PILLARS that we have pioneered through this initiative:
Together, these three focus areas are transforming the sustainability of hundreds of organisations and form the core of this year’s program.
