Best Practices in Corporate & Product Sustainability
PE INTERNATIONAL is hosting its 5th annual Best Practices Symposium under the title “The Maturity of Sustainability Management”, - A high-profile knowledge sharing event attended by thought leaders, sustainability managers and business professionals who congregate to share how sustainability management adds real value to their organizations and the environment.
As momentum grows, the sustainability market is on the path to maturity and with it sustainability management practices and tools are advancing.
During the day, you can expect inspiring presentations, roundtable discussions and an open atmosphere with excellent networking opportunities.
The event will help identity best strategies and their implementation to deal with sustainability challenges – at different maturity stages. Companies can leverage the event to help weigh up the advantages - adopt tentative compliance and risk mitigation strategies or embrace full sustainable business integration leading to transformation.
We’re proud to announce that the PE Symposium event is already being supported by a number of inspiring speakers whose thought leadership and insight support leading players and organizations across industry and the globe.
