Session Description

Policy shapes a company’s capacity for resilience. Well-crafted public policies can drive innovation, provide the certainty required for long-term investment, deliver consistency across geographies and markets, and catalyze greater business ambition and sustainability. Poorly crafted policy environments, on the other hand, create perverse incentives and artificial trade-offs between sustainability and profitability. That is why sustainability-focused public policy advocacy from the private sector is a key to building a resilient future for business and society. Join us at this session to hear from company leaders who prioritizes public policy advocacy and understand the risks and opportunities that emerge.
