The Future of Sustainable Business Is...

Join us as we explore future directions for sustainable business and celebrate BSR’s 30 years of action and impact working with business to create a more just and sustainable world.

The imperative to achieve sustainability objectives has never been clearer, or more urgent. We have lived through a series of intense and rapidly accelerating global shocks which have jolted society and business—from COVID-19 to the impacts of climate change to war and social conflict, the rollback of rights and democracy, and the looming risk of recession.

All of this is unfolding amid a roiling backlash against elements of our shared sustainable business agenda, from renewed claims of greenwashing to legislation challenging so-called “woke capitalism” to a rapidly evolving regulatory environment.

The Future of Sustainable Business Is...will tackle head-on the most pressing issues facing today’s sustainability leaders.
