Panel - How to combine Business Opportunities with Social Change and Impact?


People. Planet. Profit.  Surveys from business leaders highlight the importance of being more responsive to society’s expectations and balancing competing global and local priorities to achieve growth.  
Is this shift in CSR culture a perfect storm of disruption in the luxury industry or will it stimulate new levels of accessibility and growth?

How can the luxury sector scale up their CSR and sustainability efforts to address systemic societal and environmental risks, challenges and opportunities and leave lasting positive impact for their businesses as well as the society and the environment?

Beyond responsible business and reputation: getting more value out of CSR activities - Laura Hemrika - Credit Suisse


Increasingly companies are seeing the benefit of responsible and sustainable approaches to business: In addition to building a good reputation, best practices are starting to emerge in the way we “do” business: sustainable and responsible sourcing, supply chains, local stakeholder engagement …

Breakout Session 1 - Sustainable Luxury: a Communication Paradox ?


CSR is generally viewed as something that benefits society – which is diametrically opposed to the concept of luxury.  This view inherently renders CSR communication in the luxury industry more challenging compared to others.  How can the luxury sector effectively communicate their CSR philosophy and initiatives without diluting their brands?  What should be communicated?  How and in what channels should it be communicated to avoid being perceived as green washing?

Will social innovation become the new luxury business model? - Christine Driscoll Goulay - INSEAD


Innovation allows businesses and its leaders to face challenges posed by markets, investors, customers and shifting business and social paradigms.  An environmentally and socially responsible business needs to nurture its market - thus creating social and environmental values and attracting a new breed of social-impact conscious talent  - both of which are as important to its long-term survival as generating economic capital.  Successful businesses cannot exist in failed societies; therefore addressing global environmental and social issues offers an exciting new frontier for business in society and innovation. INSEAD calls this “social innovation” and will share best practices on how to achieve sustainable economic, environmental and social prosperity.
