Preparing Sustainability Leaders and their Companies
for the New Economy

Each meeting focuses on particular topic or issue selected by and relevant to the specific regional members. Meetings include both educational presentations by leading experts as well as facilitated peer-to peer roundtable discussions on real world challenges, best practices, practical solutions and exploring opportunities for collaboration.

These corporate roundtables tackle global CSR and sustainability topics, moving the conversation beyond energy and environmental sustainability to address issues of the new economy (i.e. new risks, circular economy, opportunities in product development, supply chain sustainability, transparency, employee engagement, sustainability reporting, carbon disclosure, internal & external communications, and the new realities of resource scarcity.)
