Event Details

Sustainability has become one of the key challenges for economy and society that presents both risks (e.g. stranded assets) and rewards (new growth markets/opportunities). Things cannot keep going as usual and no industry is left untouched by the growing pressure to change in line with the Sustainable Developments Goals (SDGs). What needs to be done to keep the business sustainable and profitable at the same time? How can companies move beyond a traditional corporate social responsibility (CSR) focus towards the strategic business responses that lead to innovation and competitive advantage?

Join us as we explore how global and Korean business leaders perceive the challenges, and opportunities, around sustainable development.
