CEOs and business leaders from North America’s most innovative, responsible brands will descend on San Diego to discuss how to lead the change to a clean, inclusive future through innovation, collaboration and investment at Ethical Corporation’s Responsible Business Summit West, October 9-10.

How technology will enable society and business to change; transitioning to a circular economy; investor preference; and community and employee engagement are key focus areas for the two-day conference.

We will host 250 CEOs, business leaders, investors, government representatives and NGOs including:

• President & General Counsel, DSM North America
• Chief Sustainability Officer, Fedex
• Chief Sustainability Officer, MetLife

Business growth and success doesn’t have to come at the expense of the environment. Pioneers are changing cultures, systems, markets and strategies that mitigate impacts. It’s up to businesses, investors, NGOs and local and state governments to step up when others aren’t showing leadership. Shape the future and collaborate with the best at #RBSWEST
