Despite the reality of the issues that the global economy is facing, businesses are still struggling to understand the importance of including environmental and social factors to their strategy, finances and operations. The 2013 ASEAN Corporate Sustainability Summit aims to shed some light on how companies can move beyond CSR and integrate sustainability into the core of its operations.

ASEAN Corporate Sustainability Summit

ECC International – through its learning solutions arm, APEX Global, is organizing the 2013 ASEAN Corporate Sustainability Summit. The event, which is happening on April 4-5, 2013 at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Manila will feature 40 Sustainability Leaders from 10 countries and will bring together 200+ Sustainability Practitioners from the ASEAN region.

The theme of this year’s Summit is “Shifting Gears. Mainstreaming Sustainability.” as it aims to bring focus on how businesses can no longer ignore global factors, which are referred to as the Sustainability Headwinds, such as Globalization, the Digital Explosion, Population Growth, Ecological Decline, the Inefficient use of Resources and Climate Change, and how sustainability initiatives have become a key differentiator and, now, imperative for businesses to survive.

In order to enable the participants to make an impact in their fields and cultivate an exchange of ideas and knowledge, the speakers will feature one of the following Dimensions during their sessions: Case Studies, Standards & Best Practices, and Tools & Technology.

The Summit, which is the first carbon neutral event in the country, will feature delegates from the Southeast Asian region from industry, government, regulatory bodies, multilateral and the academe. Keeping this in mind, the organizers further augmented the theme into three stream sessions, which would make it relevant for the participants and enable them to put sustainability into action in their fields. The 3 stream sessions to be featured at the event are: Stakeholder Engagement & Value Creation, Governance & Strategy and Competitiveness through Innovation.
