Walking the talk: Turning sustainability ambition into action

6 December 2022 | 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM SGT | Four Seasons Hotel Singapore

OVERVIEW Walking the talk: Turning sustainability ambition into action

C-level executives all around the world came to the conclusion that sustainability and environmental, social, and governance investment can help improve business results. In fact, a study by Smartstream revealed that eight out of 10 CEOs believe that sustainability will boost growth in the next five years.

However, despite this realisation only 23% of CEOs say they are fully implementing sustainability across their organisations. Meanwhile, boardroom, regulatory, and consumer pressure mounts.

Many companies know the time to act is now, but progress is hindered by a lack of expertise or not knowing where to start. Their challenge is to make it a true business driver whilst delivering a return on investments.

In partnership with Singapore Business Review, the leading provider of sustainable services IBM will hold a roundtable discussion on how to start turning sustainability ambitions into actions.

Venue: Four Seasons Hotel Singapore

Event Day: 10:00 AM SGT,
Dec 06, 2022
