About this Seminar: Purpose Strategy – An Embedded ESG Approach

Sustainable development is not just about taking responsibility. According to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index, sustainability leaders are able to develop appropriate corporate strategies and management, create long-term value for shareholders, maximize the potential of the market for products and services, and reduce the cost and risk of sustainability. To become a leader in sustainability means setting the right strategy, taking the concept to action throughout your organization, making decisions and choice that are good for the society and the environment, which in turn will benefit the company's long term profitability.

In this seminar, we will introduce the concept, value and some common frameworks of sustainability, which can be embedded into a company's strategy development:

  1. Introduction of Sustainability
  2. Introduction of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
  3. Introduction of Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) framework
