Forum : Aligning Business Strategy with ESG



An opportunity for us to come together and explore how we can integrate practices that benefit both individuals and society, while also ensuring the long-term profitability of our businesses. To achieve a future that prioritizes human well-being and reflects our community’s values, we need to be open to reassessing our current business objectives in light of ESG initiatives. As we move beyond the targets set for 2030, we will see those who champion sustainability by using ESG goals to create innovative ways for businesses to achieve profitable growth.

In this session, our group of panelists share their perspectives on how organizations prepare for the “new” normal while not only maintain but enhance business advantages through ESG.
