Responsible Business: Exploring the Role of Corporations and Leadership
Claudine Blamey, Head of Sustainable and Stewardship, The Crown Estate, UK

Public interest in the drive for businesses to foster positive social and environmental impact has increased significantly in recent years thanks to an evolving set of expectations, values and norms. However, if responsible business remains a marketing message, rather than being rooted in an organization’s leadership and culture, companies risk losing the trust of the both the public and investors.
How have the state and private actors tried to enforce companies’ corporate social responsibility commitments? How can responsible business practices be cultivated across all levels of business? Where has this been most effectively demonstrated?
This event is organized in association with Global Female Leaders.
