This week, we were excited to host our first Shanghai Sustainable Ambassador Appreciation Reception.
An event meant to celebrate the work of sustainability professionals and business leaders who are looking to drive sustainability trough their business, participants had a chance to network and share ideas over relaxed drinks and delicious hors-d’œuvres.
A group of individuals, that we began learning more about last year, and launching a report and video series dedicated to, we have come to not only learn the importance of their work but also come to understand how to better support their own development as they translate global goals into local action.
After a warm welcome by Richard Brubaker, Founder and Managing Director of Collective Responsibility, our Sustainability Ambassadors were invited to formally introduce themselves and shared their success sustainability stories.
Then the floor was opened for an exchange of ideas, with the core question of “why 2018 is the year sustainability goes strategic, and what they as business unit leaders and social entrepreneurs were inspired by.
It was a passionate discussion, which continued well into the evening, and was a great kick off to a new series of events.
An event series whose aim will be to encourage more sustainability leaders to become ambassadors and share their stories, and also to use this opportunity as platform to meet other like-minded leaders.
