While recent events in politics and business may have left some executives thinking that sustainability at the center of business strategy is at a greater cost than benefit, or as something that can be put off completely until regulations are past, improved markets for sustainability and increased corporate pressure from local stakeholders are both clear signs that an opportunity to further sustainability exists in 2017.
Therefore, to kick off the year, we thought it would be best to start here and use cases from 2016 to help you understand where we see strategic opportunities for sustainability in 2017 – and the tactics we believe can bring those strategies forward.
Beyond Business As Usual Executive Luncheon
The 2017 Case for Sustainability – January 17th
Through this session, we will share our insights on the most current reasons why sustainability makes business sense, and seek to answer questions such as:
- How will the business case for sustainability be made, or challenged, in 2017?
- What topics, and which stakeholders, will push compliance standards higher?
- How can businesses integrate sustainability into product and process innovation?
- What will be the drivers for new markets, and what will be the market opportunities for innovation?
