BSR is hosting a conversation in Seattle exclusively for representatives of our member companies and partners based on future scenarios.

The operating environment for sustainable business is being radically transformed by a diverse set of powerful and complex interacting forces. From climate disruption to automation to artificial intelligence, these changes are rapidly creating an entirely new operating environment for business. Business—and the well-being of people and the planet—will depend on new strategies for the future that account for the profound changes underway and imagine transformative new opportunities. Join us for an open and honest conversation with your peers to discuss how we can redefine sustainable business and collaboratively fulfill our mission of creating a just and sustainable world.

Members of BSR's team will share perspectives and facilitate the discussion. This intimate dinner event will offer a unique opportunity to meet and collaborate with other sustainability decision-makers and change agents in our community.

Speakers

  • Michael Rohwer, Director, Information and Communications Technology, BSR
  • Elisabeth Best, Former Manager, Sustainability Management, BSR
  • Lucas Joppa, Chief Environmental Officer, Microsoft
