EY is one of the world’s largest professional service business and is focused on building a better world. Each year they convene a conference to explore the latest thinking on risks, issues and opportunities in business. Sustainability is, naturally, a hot topic in this realm.
An article published in The Guardian – exploring the frequent misalignment between corporate sustainability aspirations and the reality of the business strategies – caught the eye of the EY team, when searching for suitable speakers. The message was direct and punchy, with substance, and resonated with their needs.
The writer, our CEO Mike Townsend, was then invited to speak at EY’s annual RiskConference in Stockholm where he took delegates on a journey of discovery at various levels of the business case, considering the risks and opportunities for sustainable business. A stimulating Q+A session followed, revealing further insights and practical suggestions for the progressive business audience to take forward.
