Past editions impressions

"Thank you so much for the invitation to speak at the conference over the last two days in Romania. I thought it was very interesting, engaging and well put together. I had pleasure to meet so many nice people and have the opportunity to share WBSCD perspectives." Katherine Madden, Manager – Implementing Sustainable Development WBSCD

"It really has a joy to behold, and I was deeply impressed by the range of people you enticed to come to Bucharest." Susan Simpson, Director Europe IBLF

"Congratulations on a successful event. I was pleased to participate and to hear the progress from 2006.” Celia Moore, Corporate Citizenship and Corporate Affairs Executive – IBM

"I thought it was a very good event and I learned a lot. I hope that we manage to remain in touch as your and our work in this area progresses." Tom Dodd, CSR Policy Officer, European Commission

"Mainstreaming CSR into business practice makes sense not only towards society and the environment. It also makes business sense." Pierre Echard, director - CSR Europe

"CSR is more important than ever as companies operate in a global world that has no boundaries. A forum to share best practices and challenges is an excellent way for businesses to discover how to best leverage their assets for the good of society." Peggy Connoly, director - The Center for Corporate Citizenship at Boston College

“My view of the Conference is that it is a timely reminder that "Green" corporate initiatives are not only essential for the survival of the planet, but also make good business sense. The Conference will be a meeting of minds and a unique opportunity to learn from the experiences of the experts and practitioners.” Terry March, Vice President - Chartered Institution of Wastes Management

"I am very glad that this conference reached already its third edition! It is a proof both of the success it had at its previous editions and of the market demand for such events that encourage the integration of CSR activities into the development strategies of the companies. I hope that Romanian companies shall take into consideration more and more this initiative that, on one side, gives them an added value on the European market and on the other side contributes to the development of the communities into which they are activating." Peter Barta, Executive Director - The Post Privatization Foundation
