The Paris Climate Accord and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have ushered in “the Sustainability Era.” The most pressing socio-economic, geo-political, demographic, corporate governance, and customer demand challenges affecting business all tie to sustainability considerations. The Conference Board’s Sustainability Summit will help sustainability professionals and other top executives to think like a CEO in understanding critical risks, opportunities, trends, and organizational needs and their vital links to strategic approaches to sustainability that will support enduring business success. The Summit will also help Sustainability Professionals identify which of the myriad of proliferating requests for ratings, rankings, standards, surveys, and transparency initiatives will be most germane in addressing critical sustainability challenges. It will help participating companies to steer away from reactive demands of the moment to target the most pressing, business-critical and strategic sustainability issues their company should prioritize.
The Sustainability Summit uniquely integrates the thought leadership provided by the Conference Board and its partners and corporate members. This creates a business led event that promises to deliver first rate insights combined with real experience. Attendees can expect to be in the company of leading practitioners from business with minimal involvement from NGOs, consultants, and others.
