Event - Responsible Business Forum on Sustainable Development

This event will take place on November 24 - 26, 2014 in Singapore. To achieve true prosperity, governments, business and civil society must look beyond short-term economic needs to achieve a more sustainable and equitable growth path. Our actions need to be shaped and guided by a better understanding of the interaction between our natural, economic and social systems.

This year, Eco-Business and Global Initiatives will convene the third Responsible Business Forum on Sustainable Development - the region's largest and highest-level event for responsible and sustainable business.

Themed ‘Building prosperity with economic, social and natural capital’, the forum will bring regional and global leaders from business, government and the NGO community to share practical solutions for sustainable growth. Topics discussed will include equitable economic growth, creating shared value, inclusive business and next-level integrated reporting.

High-level working groups across seven sectors - building & urban infrastructure, consumer goods, financial services, food, beverage and agriculture, forestry, renewable energy and shipping - will produce actionable recommendations for building a more prosperous society and planet.
