Getting under the surface of new sustainability leadership thinking
9 October Hotel Sofitel Legend Amsterdam
Each year we gather business leaders in sustainability and communications from the world’s leading businesses and brands to engage over the latest trends and challenges in the industry. The ambition is to bring together ideas for better business and provocative new perspectives on sustainability, strategy, and communications. The Forum has today grown to be the most exclusive sustainability event in Europe with around 70 brands meeting without presence of consultants and vendors.
Our 4th Sustainable Business Forum takes place 9 October at the Hotel Sofitel Legend in Amsterdam where we’re going to discuss strategies behind big sustainability movements and what businesses can learn from them.
A spotlight on new sustainable business movements
The topic this year captures the trends of sustainability movements and models such as Shared value, B corps and Circular economy that are gaining traction in the corporate world during 2014. We will get under the surface of the main concepts, analysing their core ideas, strengths and weaknesses. With insight and opinion from the organisations themselves, as well as views and first-hand experience from the brands that are working with them, this one-day event will give you direct access to the knowledge of world leading companies.
