The Ethical Corporation Difference

We have been producing CSR and sustainability conferences for 19 years across a multitude of disciplines including – communications, supply chain, governance, ethics and reporting. We have evolved our events to reflect the needs of our customers. We spend a lot of time engaging and listening to our community to understand how we can help tackle issues at our conferences

  • Practical and business focused insight: Leave our events with proven, actionable ideas and strategy from innovative companies that are pushing forward the sustainability and responsible business agenda
  • Tackling the issues that matter: Year-round research and open-ended discussion with C-Suite and Directors within business guarantees conference themes reflect the current issues, challenges and opportunities
  • Guaranteed learning: Interactive workshops, roundtable debates, case studies and panel Q&As ensure you get the answers you’re looking for. We create a learning, not listening environment, where everyone is encouraged to engage in the discussion
  • Senior-level networking: Senior-level professionals both speak and attend our events, providing you with a unique environment for peer-to-peer relationship building
