Conference Theme

Whilst CSR projects aim at doing good for the community and stakeholders of a corporation, they are often related to maintaining equilibrium in current stakeholder interests. How can we ensure that future generations also benefit from CSR projects carried out now? How can companies ensure that their CSR projects leave a positive impact now and in the future?

The conference will gather industry experts, academia and NGOs to share their views and experience, in order to draw useful insights to sustain CSR indefinitely.


Participants can look forward to a day of engaging discussions on sustaining CSR indefinitely, as we hear from industry experts, academia and opinion leaders. Speakers lined up for the conference include:
