New Climate for Business
Global sustainability trends and challenges - What will 2020 hold and what can we learn from 2019?
As we enter the 2020s, we are at a hinge point in history. Every business today is facing three strategic challenges:
- First, there is the need to redefine the role of business in society, in sync with changing expectations, and establish clear business purpose that goes beyond short-term profits.
- Second, we face the urgent objective to shift the economy to a path that delivers truly shared prosperity that respects the natural boundaries of our planet, not least the climate crisis.
- Third, every company must craft a strategy that navigates an unprecedented set of disruptions—and in some cases existential questions—that are rapidly reshaping the competitive environment.
These strategic challenges come as a result of major paradigm shifts that have taken place in recent years. Changes in policy, politics, public perception, and the natural world have created a new climate for business.
BSR (Business for Social Responsibility), Global Compact Network Denmark and the Confederation of Danish Industry (DI) invite you to join informal and inspiring discussions on these challenges and how the may be turned into opportunities as we enter into the Decisive Decade.
The seminar will be conducted in English.
