in London. As part of Responsible Business Week, this Summit aims to raise the quality of the conversation around sustainability – from the Boardroom to the customer’s sitting room.
How will you ensure your business thrives in an increasingly complex world? Significant population growth, greater resource constraints and other global mega-trends are challenging business models throughout the economy. Taking action to make your business more sustainable cannot be deferred any longer.
At the Marketplace Sustainability Summit, part of Responsible Business Week, we will consider sustainability from the boardroom, up and down supply chains, and right through to the customer’s
sitting room. You will be challenged to think about sustainability in greater depth, test new ideas and products/services, and build on that idea across your business and lifestyle.
This event, sponsored by Coca Cola Enterprises, is specifically designed for board members, CSOs, marketing directors, supply chain directors and product design/innovation directors.
You will have the opportunity to network with peers and discuss the latest innovations and developments around marketplace sustainability.
