Driving innovation - Driving responsibility - Driving profit

Given the current economic climate, this year's conference will be focused on how business leaders will deal with CSR and sustainability challenges.

Companies will look for the essential and cut back the rest. Tightening budgets, decreasing resources and, in worst scenarios, start scaling back projects and laying people off are some of the consequences of financial crisis. But what role does innovation play in this unprecedented situation? Is innovation the added value of CSR?

Come and explore the latest trends of providing a better deal for your business through innovation!

According to the latest International Corporate Sustainability Survey from KPMG, the era approaching is ruled by innovations. Using the power of innovation linked with CSR activities will help create a major breakthrough in the business dimension.

In this unstable climate it is essential that companies need to work harder than ever to change and adapt their products and services to prevent risks and to maximize the opportunities of financial crisis.

Beyond issues related to climate change & sustainable development, OH&S, economical crisis, social poverty and unfair labor practices, lays the opportunity of dealing with them in a creative manner.

Our sessions are meant to ensure that your company finds the right knowledge in managing its social and business value in this unique event tailor made for your needs.

Take part in CSR’09 and learn how to get ready for the huge changes that lie ahead!
