Event Details

Covid-19 pandemic has offered us a chance to explore alternative business processes that could be both economical and friendlier to the planet. Having to pay 5 yen for a plastic bag, an initiative started in July also reminded people in Japan that there are ample rooms for our behavior to change that could be more sustainable in the long run.

How should business leaders strike the right balance between the long term sustainability goals and short term business survival needs? Is the concept of Build Back Better flawed as the world struggle to recover? How could business leaders change the perception of the sustainability as strategic business choices that could lead to competitive advantage rather than traditional corporate social responsibility (CSR) focused?

Join us as we explore how businesses can square the long term sustainability goals in the new post-covid world.

Please note that this event is limited to senior-level executives and per invitation only. If you are not an existing member of The Economist Corporate Network, but would like to learn how you can attend our events, please contact us.
