20 September @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Globalisation of workforces and supply chains, climate change and competition for food, water, energy and natural resource are intrinsically linked to economic prosperity and growth. Long-term sustainability is only viable when both environmental and human development is equally prioritised within the public and private sectors. How can businesses effect real change and capitalize on the business value of the circular economy while maximizing their positive contributions to society’s challenges?
This session will discuss:
- how the private sector is responding to elevated customer expectations
- the importance of public-private collaboration for meaningful change
- examples of how business and chambers can make substantial changes to reduce negative side effects for local populations and the environment
