The 10th annual ELEVATE Leadership Series
— New York City
Brands and retailers face increasing pressure to create transparent, sustainable supply chains from multiple stakeholders. Sustainability professionals are responsible for simultaneously managing risk to the company’s business, demonstrating corporate citizenship, and reporting progress to investors.
Join us in NYC to hear from leaders in sustainability and supply chain labor and environmental responsibility as we examine the business challenges, external market dynamics, investor expectations, and consumer preferences influencing responsible sourcing programs in 2019.
With our theme of Program Effectiveness, we will explore the tactical and strategic investments that ensure better returns and impact from responsible sourcing.
Session topics will cover:
— 2019 Top Trends in Corporate Social Responsibility
— Navigating our tumultuous trade environment
— Rethinking responsible sourcing strategies
— New funding models to drive impact, reduce costs, and optimize collaboration
— How sustainability programs support investor relations
— The ELEVATE Lightning Round, and more
