The Social Agenda – needs and opportunities mit Marga Hoek, preisgekrönte Autorin von The Trillion Dollar Shift & von Thinkers50 ausgezeichnet

The social agenda – needs and opportunities

The last decennium, the business world has become aware of the need to change business towards a more sustainable direction. Climate change, resource scarcity, food waste and the need for nutricious food are known needs for change. Behavior around the world is changing and driving companies to assess how to contribute to and play a role in that change, in an economical sensible way.

Frontrunner companies, be it startups, SME’s or multinationals will be the first to transform into purpose driven companies: putting sustainability at the heart of strategy besides doing the obvious: mitigating risk by reducing the footprint.

Putting sustainability into the heart of strategy means incorporating a shared value business model, which actually is good business. It leads to new markets, new customers and gets companies in demand for employees. It implies bold leadership, and knowledge of the needs and opportunities of the global, social agenda.

This is the focus of this Knowledge Day: how can you successfully incorporate a sustainable business model, mitigating risks on the one hand, and creating value via new business models at the same time.
