Mastering the Sustainable Business Imperative: Consulting Roadtrip, 21 – 24 May 2019

In post-industrialisation age, information is abundant and resources scarce. Firms can thrive or die based on their innovation in using natural resources efficiently, avoid scandals, and build strong relations with clients, suppliers, staff, and regulators. We establish a brief but solid research-based foundation, before we go into firms that are world-market leaders in their field; e.g. Barry Callebaut (Cocoa), South Pole Group (emission reduction projects), Bank J. Safra Sarasin (private banking). We sit down with management and develop solutions for specific sustainability related challenges. In the evening, we have the chance to meet with sustainability professionals.
