Stakeholders & Sustainability

Business Leaders Conference 2021 – IBEC

The theme for this year’s conference ‘Stakeholders & Sustainability’ reflects the political mood of the day. The pandemic has given rise to an economic shift towards stakeholder capitalism – where companies create sustainable value for all stakeholders, customers, employees, suppliers, communities, the environment and shareholders.

Headlining this conference will be a host of global and national CEOs leading the way in sustainable capitalism and ESG including Paul Polman, former CEO of Unilever and Co-founder & Chair of IMAGINE.

The conference will explore the massive opportunity for business leaders across all sectors and company sizes to get on the right side of this, de-risk their business and generate more sustainable long-term profitability.

The event will be a combination of keynote presentations and panel discussions, delivered on a world-class virtual event platform using live studio broadcasts.

Keynote / Paul Polman

Paul is Co-founder and Chair of IMAGINE, a social venture which mobilises business leaders around tackling climate change and global inequality. Paul is the Honorary Chair of the International Chamber of Commerce, Chair of The B Team and Saïd Business School and Vice-Chair of the UN Global Compact. A leading proponent that business should be a force for good, he has been described by the Financial Times as “a standout CEO of the past decade”.

As CEO of Unilever (2009-2019), he demonstrated that a long-term, multi-stakeholder model goes hand-in-hand with excellent financial performance. Paul was a member of the UN Secretary General’s High-Level Panel which developed the Sustainable Development Goals, and as an active SDG Advocate he continues to work with global organisations and across industry to push the 2030 development agenda.
