Breaking the Compromise: How Managers Achieve Their SDGs and Deliver the Bottom Line (G1 Global 2019)
G1 Global Conference @GLOBIS Tokyo, Sept. 16, 2019.
Until recently ESG (environment, sustainability, and governance) frameworks were a way for corporations to fulfill their “responsibility” towards society, which often demanded social and ethical leadership from leading corporations. The UN has since upped the ante to a more comprehensive list of sustainable development goals (SDGs). Great companies, leaders, and investors now know that there is not a trade-off between doing "good" for the world and doing "well" financially. Additionally, the best talent in the world looks to join enterprises that have a clarity of vision and mission on these issues. How do CEOs balance these interests in their companies? How do investors direct their money towards companies that have successfully incorporated SDGs into their business? In this session, panelists will discuss strategies on how they see these issues playing out in their own corporations and clients as well as in best-practice companies.
