An increasing number of companies are starting to move beyond corporate social responsibility and philanthropic activities into more Inclusive Business and Shared Value approaches. This practice looks to aligns a company’s core business with their impact strategies. Meanwhile, large exchanges in Asia, such as Bursa Malaysia, Singapore Exchange and Hong Kong Stock Exchange, have introduced new ESG reporting requirements. This context provides opportunities for organisations to assess and align their corporate impact and philanthropy strategies with their core business activities, sustainability management and reporting.
In this exclusive roundtable, AVPN, Forum for the Future and Mars, Incorporated / Catalyst will share the latest trends around corporate impact and sustainability strategies practiced globally and give insights on how to apply these to Asia.
Join us for this important conversation about opportunities and challenges. Come share your experiences and leave with a better understanding of how to develop a better corporate impact strategy.
This is a by invitation only event. Please contact [email protected] for further details.
