On the 7th of May, ecoDa, PwC and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) organised a joint conference entitled “Looking beyond financial performance”.
The global challenges such as social inequality and environmental sustainability have spurred a deep reflection across the international community on how to rebuild trust in the economy.
The overall conclusion was that businesses should lead the path towards long-term sustainability and not wait for legislators. The re-alignment of societal and corporate interests, thus ensuring the sharing of costs and benefits of the transition to a sustainable economic paradigm is a priority.
The European Commission is currently assessing the need for Boards to have a sustainable strategy, including in the whole supply chain and to redefine the terms of the interests of the company. First conclusions will be shared at the end of the autumn and final ones by the end of the year.
