Business Leadership for a Sustainable Future: WBCSD Vision 2050 Refresh
Thursday, 12 March 2020 09:30 to 15:30
With over three dozen leading companies, the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) is driving a collective, business-led effort to revisit its Vision 2050 – a landmark report issued a decade ago which focused on the opportunity for business to help unlock the transformations that are needed to allow over 9 billion people to live well, within the boundaries of the planet, by mid-century.
As part of this exercise, the WBCSD is working with its Global Network partners, including the National Business Initiative (NBI), to realise an engagement programme in form of a global roadshow across key geographies including: Africa; Australia; Brazil; China; Europe; India; Japan; Latin America; North America and Southeast Asia.
The NBI and the WBCSD are therefore hosting a workshop in Johannesburg to give companies the opportunity to engage and provide input into this process, which is due to be completed by October of 2020. Participants will also be given positive, opportunity-based, action agenda needed for the decade to come, in support of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
During the session you will be given the chance to exchange and engage on the back of insights about the challenges and opportunities for business to catalyze transformation of major economic systems such as food, energy, mobility, etc., and trends that will most likely shape the operating environment over the next decade.
