#Sustainability Management


The world around us is changing more rapidly than ever before. Whether it is new energy systems, disruptive technologies, or rising geopolitical uncertainty, business is faced with massive new questions about its role in creating a just and sustainable world.

What does this mean for the incorporation of sustainability into the strategy, governance, and management structures at companies? BSR’s new report Redefining Sustainable Business for a Rapidly Changing World provides a blueprint for putting sustainability at the center of business and describes how the best response to this situation is not to continue advocating for further integration of sustainability into business strategy, but to change the very way that companies design strategy and create value.

Join us for this BSR Connect member event to discuss the future of sustainability strategy, governance, and management in business, with a special focus on how to govern and manage sustainability inside companies. Following a short presentation, we will host a discussion with Rohit Burman, vice president, global corporate citizenship and sustainability of The Estée Lauder Companies on this topic.

Speakers

  • Rohit Burman, Vice President, Global Corporate Citizenship and Sustainability, The Estée Lauder Companies
  • Alison Taylor, Managing Director, Sustainability Management, BSR
