Business model change: Actions following COP24 and the 2030 Agenda

In order to tackle our sustainability challenges, multi-actor collaboration have been put forward as an important process for change. At this workshop we will discuss drivers and barriers to organisational change, integrating business expertise and our latest research. 

As part of the activities in the SMART Business Forum and the SMART Sustainable Governance Programme, we are arranging a workshop on organisational change where we will discuss drivers and barriers for companies to change their business conduct.

We will discuss processes ranging from smaller organisational changes to re-thinking the whole business model. We need business to contribute to securing the social foundation while staying within planetary boundaries - this needs to be a process of mutual learning and exchange of knowledge between multiple actors. Such an approach is more socially robust and solutions-oriented, and benefits more actors in society.

We have invited interesting speakers from both business and academia to set the scene for our discussions. If you are not part of our forums and would like to attend, please feel free to register. You will shortly receive confirmation of attendance if available.
