WEBINAR: Economic growth and environmental sustainability

12 Aug 2020 - Online

The environmental impact of economic growth can include an increase of natural resources and contribute to the rise in carbon emissions globally. However, businesses who focus on improving environmental sustainability technologies, the tracking of emissions, environmental reporting and climate-related financial disclosures can have a positive impact on business models and profitability.

Creating sustainable supply chains starts with understanding the critical issues that face your business and applying long term sustainable development goals appropriately, turning the impact of climate change into a driver for positive operational change.

But is the corporate world really walking the walk on sustainability?

Join our economic growth and environmental sustainability webinar to learn more about financially sustainable supply chains.
