750+ Attendees

150+ Speakers

60+ CEOs

10+ Workshops

150+ Investors

2020 is THE year for business to take action on the environmental and social issues that we face. Increasing legislation, investor and societal pressure coupled with more stark environmental warnings means the time for words is over – WE NEED ACTION. And with this action brings opportunity for increased leadership and brand reputation.

In May 2020 we will convene 700+ leaders from across the globe to share their latest strategies, and more importantly, tangible insights into how they are helping deliver the required transformation of business. The Responsible Business Summit is unique in that it brings together all the key stakeholders (leading CEOs, heads of business, investors, governmental representatives, NGOs and industry associations) and drives frank and honest discussions on the challenges and opportunities through scaled ambitions.

2020 Headline Themes

  • Leadership Keynotes – Leadership vision on how business can raise the ambition of the SDGs, set new targets and move from dialogue to action  
  • Climate Action and Circular Innovation – Learn the latest technologies and innovations that will deliver a clean, circular system – and how!
  • Purpose-Driven Strategy and SDG Leadership – Succeed in aligning business strategy to create SDG impact and advocate a clear purpose-driven strategy.
  • Responsible Supply Chains and Technology – Lead on tackling key social and environmental risks within their supply chain
  • ESG Data and Investor Engagement – Build a dialogue between corporates and investors on best practice for ESG-driven disclosures

NEW WORKSHOPS for 2020!

New for 2020 will be devoted workshops on the key economic infrastructures that have to undergo a systemic change to meet the 2050 net-zero ambitions:

  • Future Food and Land Use
  • Future Cities and Mobility
  • Future Energy and Carbon
  • Future Tech

Recent expert speakers include:

The 2019 event was a sell-out event where 500+ CEOs, investors, heads of business, Governmental representatives and NGOs shared ideas and strategies on how business can take the lead on key social and environmental issues. We have exciting plans for the 2020 event to further increase the impact and collaboration across the key stakeholder groups. Make sure you and your company are involved.

The #RBSEU agenda will help you uncover the ideas, new technologies and partnerships that can help your company demonstrate sustainable leadership. There’s no corporate fluff in our agenda, just practical, deep-dive examples to show how businesses can transition to a more responsible and sustainable business strategy

  1. Multiple tracks / Multiple disciplines: In 2020, we are doing things differently. We will create dedicated tracks and workshops that address how organisations are driving the responsible business agenda on key issues. We will bring together experts from sustainability, communications, procurement and innovation departments as well as investors, NGOs, Governmental bodies and academics to drive the debate
  2. 750+ of the most innovative, exciting brands in attendance: #RBSEU will give you the most senior networking opportunity possible. We lead our conferences with the latest ideas and case studies out there, and take pride in our in-depth research to pinpoint the brands that are doing the most impactful work to share their learnings.
  3. Practical learnings: We’re not afraid to talk about what doesn’t work as much as what does! Our sessions are practical with live polling and interactive questions. We guarantee you'll walk away with new ideas and contacts to help improve your strategy for 2020 and beyond.
  4. NEW FOR 2020: On 26th May 2020 we will be running in-depth workshops, in partnership with leading organisations, on key areas of business that must transform to deliver the Goals ahead. The workshops will be action-orientated with agreed commitments / follow ups agreed.
