2015 was a monumental year for sustainability, ending with the high of a successful Paris Agreement and the arrival of the Sustainable Development Goals, among other global achievements. But what does this mean for business in 2016 and beyond?

To help business leaders navigate the coming year and turn the 2015 moment into a 2016 movement, we will host a BSR-members-only webinar, featuring BSR’s senior leadership, to discuss key topics in the year ahead, including:

  • How business can thrive in a climate-compatible world
  • The business role in creating an inclusive economy
  • Concrete ways business can integrate commitments on human rights, supply chain, circular economy, and reporting

This webinar is for members located in time zones in Asia or the U.S. West Coast. If you are located in the Americas, Europe, Middle East, or Africa, or if you are interested in attending both webinars, please register for this webinar.

  • Jeremy Prepscius, Vice President, Asia-Pacific, BSR
