Event - Sustainable Brands Conference in Kuala Lumpur

This event will take place on October 12-13, 2015 at the Hilton Kuala Lumpur, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. This is the first Asian country to host the World’s Premier Sustainability Brands® Conference and be and be part of the global conference network. Join sustainability and design leaders along with a global community of business innovators who are shaping the future of commerce worldwide.

Participants at this event will learn from the vision of global thought leaders and practitioners as they discuss the way forward towards a more sustainable economy that delivers net good for customers and the world. Connect and collaborate with brand innovation professionals from across various industries in discovering new opportunities on how to profitably innovate for sustainability.

Why Attend?

Founded on the principles of system thinking and cross-functional problem-solving, the Sustainable Brands® community fully realises that opportunities around innovation for sustainability cannot be realised to their full potential by any one department, team or visionary leader working alone.

Indeed, many years of collective experience have demonstrated that truly effective, scalable and profitable corporate sustainability journeys have to involve every major pillar of an organisation. That is why leaders in our community aim to cover the full range of key respective discussion topics at Sustainable Brands® '15 Kuala Lumpur in October.

You will also hear on the FTSE4Good Bursa Malaysia (F4GBM) Index that was recently mandated by Bursa Malaysia. Through this conference, you will be equipped with how to better prepare yourself for this new mandate.

Who Should Attend?

I seek to solve social problems that alleviate, or altogether eliminate, resource tensions along the way.

I believe leadership stems from brands that have awareness of the impact they have on the world around them.

I encourage purpose-driven voice and invite stakeholders on interactive, co-creative journeys.

I seek skillful, sensitive design that leads to radical innovation and heightened shared value.

Supply chain disruptions are not an option. I strive for enlightenment across the entire value chain.

I encourage embedded sustainability-driven behaviors and pro-active management to drive change from within.
