According to research published in the MIT Sloan Management Review, 75% of senior executives in investment firms agree that a company’s sustainability performance is important to consider when making investment decisions. Most of the world’s biggest companies publish this information and with the new GRI standards many more organizations will be able to provide investors, consumers, employees and other stakeholders with the performance information they need.
Our guest speaker has been fully dedicated to the subject of sustainability development of corporations since his retirement from government. Starting from 2007, he has been very successful in introducing international trends and strategies into local sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) developments. For example, he is the leader and organizer of the annual corporate sustainability award that has become a platform for both local and foreign corporations in Taiwan to demonstrate and communicate their sustainability and CSR performance and achievement.
At this event the speaker will share insights into the latest international trends in sustainability development and the current sustainability and CSR situations in Taiwan corporations. His speech may provide valuable information on how sustainability can help corporations take precautionary measures and seize business opportunities in facing economic or environmental challenges.About the SpeakerDr Eugene Chien is currently the Chairman of the Taiwan Institute for Sustainable Energy (TAISE).
