Co-Creating Impact Summit

Event details
  • December 9th, 2020, 08:00 AM - 07:00 PM
  • Country: Online, Switzerland

With the rapidly changing ESG landscape, amplified by the COVID-19 pandemic, there is a lot to discuss around what roles corporations should play in the society and how to measure their impact. The upcoming Co-Creating Impact Summit combines external perspectives with thought leading practitioners and Novartis´ own impact valuation and materiality experiences.

We are very excited to invite you to this year’s fully digital Co-Creating Impact Summit on December 9, 2020. To make the experience engaging and interactive, we are working on a virtual exhibition that will allow participants to explore the building blocks of our roadmap as well as inspiring best-practices created by internal and external practitioners. Stay tuned for more information!

The agenda for the event is evolving and as you are reading this, we are finalizing an exciting lineup of internal and external speakers. Please find below a high-level overview of the different sessions and topics that will be covered. The final agenda will be shared soon.

With great excitement, we can already announce that Shannon Klinger, Chief Legal Officer of Novartis will provide a keynote speech. She will be joined by Colin Mayer, Professor at Saïd Business School,  and author of “Prosperity”. Dominic Hofstetter, Director of Capital & Investments and Member of the Executive Board at Climate KIC and Veronica Poole, Global IFRS and Corporate Reporting Leader at Deloitte, will share their valuable perspectives on rapidly evolving trends in the ESG space and how the future may unfold. Furthermore, we are very delighted to welcome back the two thought leading pioneers Robert G. Eccles, Professor of Management Practice at the Harvard Business School and Saïd Business School as well as John Elkington, Chairman & Chief Pollinator at Volans Ventures and Chair of the Novartis Impact Valuation Advisory Council (IVAC). And there is more to come…
