Online Summit 2019

Shifting Perspectives – Redefining Sustainability

Welcome to day #5!

21st Century Companies: Changing Business Paradigms

On our second day, we came to the simple conclusion: All our environmental challenges have one main reason: Consumption. Equally, much of the inequality in the world is due to our outdated business practices and economic models. So, to find answers to our biggest challenges, we must also ask the following question: Why and how do we do business in the future? 

On this, our most extensive day yet, 20 of our speakers strive to find an answer, and outline their vision for the future of business. Tensie Whelan sets the scene with the ‘Next Phase of Capitalism’. Which means going back to its origins: Solving problems and creating opportunities. Bob Chapman then argues that businesses need no justification to care for people. Afdhel Aziz, Philip Ullmann and Adam Henderson widen the scope to explore how business culture is changing, what we must do to help new ideas to grow and how we will all benefit from a more modern way of working.  

All coming from very different backgrounds, industries and countries, they share a common theme: The days of ‘business as usual’ are over. We must transform our organisations into forces for positive change. Creating new values. And new opportunities for our society and planet to thrive.
