The Global CSR Summit 2013 will be introducing the most cutting edge ideas and issues relating to sustainability in the Asian business community. As it is now generally accepted that sustainability has now entered the mainstream of business, the challenge now is to examine our practices to ensuring that CSR is not used as a tool for whitewashing certain hidden unethical activities.
Building on the theme: "Local innovations, global impact", the conference will address how governments and corporations today can tackle these problems collectively at the local level and adopt long lasting and innovative business and governance models for positive global impact.
The Global CSR Summit & Awards 2013 will feature presentations and discussions from leading personalities in the business and government arena covering sectors from large spectrum of businesses in Asia. Delegates will also witness the achievements of top performing organisations and persons in the realm of sustainability through the Global CSR Awards ceremony. This is coupled with expert training workshops and an eco- leisure tour to the best scenic sights of Davao.
