The Economist Sustainability Summit Chicago – 5th June 2018

From resources to capital markets: Long-term strategy for a short-term world. It’s time to raise the sustainability bar and sharpen the focus.

 

 

 

This event will take place on the 5th June in Chicago.

Supply chains are at the heart of sustainability efforts. They involve the resources, people, information, technology, and networks needed to move a product or service from supplier to customer. Better supply chains often lead to a better bottom line. But what happens when they don’t?

At this year’s summit, we will discuss:

  • How governments can ensure that businesses stay the course and provide an incentive to remain green
  • How leaders can ensure that long-term strategy sticks in an era plagued by short-termism
  • The extent to which natural disasters such as flooding, hurricanes, and earthquakes must be factored into a company’s overall strategy and the supply chain equation
  • How consumers can use their influence over brands to play their part in mitigating the effects of climate change

Libby Bernick, Head of Corporate Business at Trucost, part of S&P Dow Jones Indices will be speaking at this event.
