Ibec is hosting a half day Summit on 30 November at the InterContinental Hotel in Dublin focusing on social sustainability. This unique think-in and interactive style event will convene business voices to discuss the leadership role business can play to support social cohesion in Ireland. This event is for C-suite, board members and sustainability leads.
The growth and resilience our economy has shown in recent years has positioned Ireland as a prime location for companies to set up and grow with resounding success. Ireland’s reputation as a trusted place to do business entices international investment and attracts leading talent from around the world to live, work and thrive.
With a sharp focus on the ‘S’ in ESG, this Summit will convene leading business voices to share insights on the social framework underpinning Ireland’s economy. Speakers will examine the societal issues causing polarisation in Ireland and beyond, and how they are posing a huge risk to Ireland’s competitiveness and long-term prosperity. As delegates reflect on what this means for business, and business growth on the island, the Summit’s expert speakers will debate why at a point of inflection, fostering social cohesion and stability is imperative for a successful and sustainable business model in Ireland.
Roundtables and interactive panel discussions will be expertly moderated by Event MC, Ian Kehoe, Co-founder and Editor of The Currency, who will question if business leaders should have an active leadership approach in addressing societal issues and delivering long-term social value? Delegates will be invited to reflect on the important social issues of our time and share ideas and solutions to the economic challenges impacting business growth in Ireland.
Can business afford to take a wait and see approach with rising pressure from stakeholders to do more on economic and societal equality? Or can we get ahead to be part of the solution?
