This session will bring you the latest thinking and ideas around the vital commercial topic of sustainability and what it means for your business.

Over recent years, sustainability has grown in importance. Governments are waking up to the challenge of climate change and customers are starting to include sustainability criteria in their purchase decisions. The investment community is embracing ESG, not only in response to investor demand, but also to reduce risk. Sustainability has shifted from being a component of CSR to having a direct impact on strategic decisions. Understanding what this means for business is vital to long-term commercial success. Sustainability can no longer be ignored, and those businesses that do will be left behind.
