Business Leaders for a Sustainable Future - Cross Business School Alumni, UBS Konferenzgebäude Grünenhof, Zurich, September 20, 2019

The choices we make every day as business leaders can have a significant impact on society, the environment and the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).  From investment decisions (such as impact investing) and strategic planning to resource management and company policy, even the smallest actions can accumulate into global impact.  By better understanding the SDGs, and the role of business in supporting them, we can more effectively promote choices with positive outcomes for both business and sustainable development.
This Cross B-Schools event convenes top subject-matter experts and alumni. The panel discussion will be followed by an apéro riche.  
Participation is limited to 200 alumni and guests, so make sure to register to secure your place and benefit from the early bird discounted price.
We look forward to seeing you there!
