BSR Conference 2016: Be Bold

This year’s Conference theme is a rallying cry for businesses addressing the toughest issues our time: BE BOLD. The challenges of building a sustainable future are immense, and will require collaborative, innovative thinking from all sectors of society. We know there are substantial opportunities to build inclusive, sustainable economies through business leadership and partnerships—and we also know that we won’t achieve these goals unless we think big, and think bold. At the BSR Conference 2016, we’ll hear compelling stories from companies, foundations, big thinkers, and creative doers who are making big bets in building a better world.

This year, we are pleased to offer group discounts to three or more people registering at the same time from the same company. Please visit our registration page for details.
