• BEC EnviroSeries Conference: Transforming Business for Sustainability

    25 November 2021

    COVID-19 has reshaped the way we live our lives, forcing us to re-examine priorities, re-consider the status quo and innovate solutions to thrive under the ‘new normal’.

    Early on, as everyone fought the pandemic through lockdowns around the world, it was expected that sustainability would move down the list of priorities with the business sector facing certain economic downturn. In fact, we observed the opposite trend with even more ambitious actions to combat climate change, address circularity and enhance contributions to building a sustainable living environment.

    Learning from this shared pandemic experience, there is an accelerated shift in business focus to long-term value creation that considers the needs of stakeholders beyond shareholders including consumers, employees and the wider society. In an increasingly unpredictable world, the expectations stakeholders have of the business sector change rapidly and companies must respond. Taking a reactive stance is not good enough. Leadership must transform to be more proactive to pre-empt emerging risks and openly embrace opportunities.

    With the theme of “Transforming Business for Sustainability”, BEC EnviroSeries Conference to be held on 1 December 2021 (Wednesday) will share, showcase and discuss best practices and success stories in business transformation from selected industries, and inspire the wider business community to push for transformational strategies and ambitious actions conducive to long-term sustainability and the creation of shared value for society.
