Business as usual is no longer an option. Environmentally conscious consumers demand far more than damage limitation from the brands they favour. As the heavy cost of the ruthless pursuit of profit becomes clearer, old models of expansion, acquisition and consumption are quickly becoming untenable and unseemly.
Our Sustainability Summit in-house presentation fosters the new thinking that is urgently required to ensure that future generations have a future worth living in. With insights on rising trends, consumer drivers and innovative brands driving change, we highlight opportunities to make money while doing good.
