“This is a unique opportunity for business leaders and entrepreneurs who are seeking to embed sustainability within their organisations and to lead transformational change in the wider economy to deliver a sustainable future. They will have the opportunity to explore global sustainability pressures and trends, to deepen their understanding of the implications and opportunities for business, and to gain insight and inspiration from creative, solutions-focused discussions and engagement with local innovators.
