A Conference to Redefine Sustainable Business

We are living in a time of unprecedented change. New technologies, shifting cultural norms, evolving economic structures, and unprecedented environmental threats are reshaping the planet. Business is both shaping and responding to these changes. This increasingly complex environment requires a new blueprint for business, with resilient strategies, effective governance models, and new management approaches to create a global economy that delivers on the promise of prosperity for all in a world with finite resources. Join us this November, where together we will create a new blueprint for business and a more just and sustainable future.
