National Conference on Sustainability and Responsible Business

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals have identified the key thrusts to ensure the UN’s Agenda 2030 is achieved. To achieve the Sustainable Development Goals Government, Business and Civil Society organizations need to work together to deliver results. Increasingly companies, government agencies and NGO’s have to embed sustainability into their organizations.
Businesses and companies can benefit from sustainability through:

► Improved Productivity
► Lower Cost
► Innovation and Access to Capital and New Customers
► Attracting, Motivating and Retaining Talent

 

In short, Sustainability makes good business sense. This conference aims to discuss:

► How does sustainability impact on business?
► How corporations define and think about sustainability?
► The business case for sustainability
► How sustainability can create a competitive advantage?
► The different business models for making sustainability a part of business

 

Traditional CSR have now shifted to sustainability. The triple bottom line – Planet, People and Profits have now added Partnership and Peace to make it 5P’s.

 

This conference will also explore opportunities and risks in sustainability and how to integrate sustainability into your business, as well as develop a new CSR thrust focusing on sustainability and the SDG’s.
