Ethical Corporation: Global CEOs Gather in London to Discuss Future CSR and Sustainability Strategy and Opportunities at Leading Conference
LONDON --(Business Wire)--
In a year of corporate challenges, reputational crises and economic
difficulties, sustainability and CSR (News - Alert) has never been far from the minds
of leading global business players. And that's down to a fundamental
shift in the way this complex topic is viewed in the boardroom.
From a cost-centre, a regulatory requirement and a risk mitigation
exercise, sustainability strategy has become instead a leading creator
of significant value for business.
AT Kearney's Green Winners report found that companies focused on
sustainability outperformed peers by 15% during the financial crisis.
Goldman Sachs found that companies with a robust ESG strategy
outperformed peers by 22%. A Watson Wyatt report showed that highly
trusted companies outperform peers by 300%.
The evidence has been accruing for some time, and Ethical Corporation's
leading conference, the Responsible
Business Summit offers a global forum for corporations to discuss
how they can leverage this opportunity.Recognised as the leading event
in the space, corporations have been attending the Summit for over a
decade to discuss the challenging - and changing - role of
sustainability in business.
On the 8th and 9th May in London, over 400 leading executives will
gather to discuss the transformation of sustainability at the biggest
conference on corporate responsibility and responsible business in
Europe - and the increasing interest from the C-suite in taking
advantage of the opportunities that CSR present to the savvy business.
Leading CEOs will present their strategy and approach, including:
John Brock, CEO of Coca Cola Enterprises, who will
discuss how to build a resilient supply chain
Paul Walsh, CEO of Diageo on how to collaborate and compete on
Peter Rothwell, CEO of Kuoni, who will discuss how to deliver
Alongside these global business leaders, 50+ other leading
sustainability executives will present, sharing best practice, strategy
and insight on the many aspects of sustainability and CSR management.
