About the event
As profound shifts, such as pandemics, resource pressures, and shrinking biodiversity—threaten our very existence, other megatrends, such as the push for a clean economy and the unprecedented focus on diversity and inclusion, offer exciting new opportunities to heal the world, and prosper by doing so. Government cannot do this alone. Business must step up.
In this discussion we will talk with CEO Paul Polman. He will share key lessons from Unilever and other pioneering companies around the world about how you can profit by fixing the world's problems instead of creating them. To thrive today and tomorrow, they argue, companies must become "net positive"—giving more to the world than they take.
