2) Sustainability in Practice Seminar
Demand for stronger corporate governance and transparency. Volatile commodity prices and variability of energy supply. Aging workforce. These and more issues are shaking up companies and countries over the world.
 
As consumers and public are now more focused on environmentally friendly and socially responsible products, companies have to create strong value propositions to differentiate themselves and sustain their businesses. This symposium focuses on methodologies to cultivate a robust sustainability culture. It will help companies to make sustainability a practical and integral part of creating stakeholder value by “doing more with less”.
