New for 2016: 

 2016 is our biggest and most popular year yet - we've grown by 180% in attendees, adopted a business risk approach to responsible business & moving away from a pure ‘sustainability’ mind-set so we actually relate to ‘the business’.


  • CEO KEYNOTES: Be inspired by our handpicked CEOs sharing their vision on responsible business leadership
  • 3 FOCUSED THEMES: SDGs and Climate Change, Influencing Customer Behaviour and Business Risk are the 3 hot topics our community want to learn more about. Hear best practice  and learn how your peers are practically managing this
  • MEET GOVERNMENT AND POLICY MAKERS: Unlimited access to leading policy makers on future policy around managing risk for business
  • BUILD BUSINESS RELATIONSHIPS: 2016 is all about understanding what business functions care about and how can sustainability help. Ask your biggest questions to our business leaders and learn how to foster lasting relationships.
  • BIG PARTNERSHIP DEBATE: We know that those seeking new partners have specific challenges and needs. In this open debate, find out the benefit partnerships bring, how brands and 3rd parties actually collaborate and what you should look for in partnership opportunities to add real value to your brand and reputation.
  • MORE CASE STUDIES, ROUNDTABLES, LIVE POLLING: Following popular demand, we have more case-studies than ever before. Get insight into the best responsible business success stories of 2016 to understand just how they did it… from concept to completion!
