#Sustainability Management


BSR is inviting a select group of innovative companies to discuss sustainable business in the San Francisco Bay Area.  

The Bay Area is known for its cluster of companies that innovate, disrupt, and grow. These companies have the potential to provide solutions to some of society’s greatest problems—but how can we embed commitment to sustainability and responsibility during the formative years? How can the exciting companies of today become the creators of value in the long run?

This event is one of six in a series of global “Redefining Sustainable Business” convenings that will generate insights to help reshape how we think about the sustainable business agenda. These dialogues will feed into content that will be disseminated at the BSR Conference 2018 in New York, November 6-8. This series is based on the view that the forces transforming business and society require new, more resilient business strategies—ones that will necessarily have sustainability at their core.

Join BSR and your peers for this informal and interactive discussion about the future of sustainable business at Bay Area companies.

Speakers

  • Kelly Gallo, Manager, BSR
  • Michael Rohwer, Associate Director, Information and Communications Technology, BSR
  • Additional speakers will be confirmed
