The topic for 2018 is on: “Communicating sustainable development & reporting to stakeholders”. Communications plays a vital part in any sustainability strategy. If a company doesn’t communicate ambition and processes internally, it may not be able to implement the change necessary to make the organization more sustainable by mobilizing your employees to drive the changes needed for success. If a company doesn’t communicate its strategies, activities and progress externally, to investors, customers, partners and the public, then it could be negatively impacted by an increasing number of environmentally and socially conscious investors and consumers as well as fall foul of increasing regulation and requirements.

The topic for 2017 was on: Integrating strategic sustainability into business decision making. True integration of sustainability means that material issues effectively are addressed within business functions and seen as critical to the company’s viability. Integration enables companies to understand internally, and — where relevant — communicate externally, how they create value and to better manage performance on critical issues.

As sustainable businesses will be more successful in the future, it is therefore critical for the next generation of leaders to understand the importance of sustainability to their businesses and integrate the opportunities and risks in their core business strategy and decision making.
