|Discovery Event October 6-7 2008|
|Topic||Forum For Corporate Sustainability Management|
|Date||October 6-7 2008|
|Details||At this annual event, the Forum for Corporate Sustainability Management (CSM), offers the IMD Corporate Learning Network an opportunity to be exposed to cutting edge research results of far-reaching research projects on the economic logic for sustainability, stakeholder pressure and sustainability partnerships. Over the past five years, CSM has drawn some sobering conclusions about the status of corporate sustainability in Europe. The business case for sustainability is far from being exploited by industry mainly because primary stakeholders are not pushing for sustainability. Other stakeholders, including NGOs lack leverage to push companies towards more sustainable business models and products. With the urgency of the debates regarding “mega”-issues, such as climate change, water, poverty, and global health, are the tables turning? Have partnerships between the main actors had any real far-reaching effects?|
