The 2012 Conference Board CEO Challenge®— Voices from the Front Lines

In this new series of webcasts, we’ll hear from corporate practitioners on the front lines of addressing the top-ranked challenges. Executives from across the enterprise will join lively discussions of what they believe will be the most critical strategies for meeting these challenges.

Asia is the only global region that ranked sustainability as a top-five challenge. With the public’s perception about the quality of life and environmental issues changing, CEOs are looking to community outreach, formalized reporting, and branding processes to meet the challenge. In much of the world, the sustainability agenda is driven by governments. The elements of sustainability include corporate citizenship, environmental sustainability, and having a “green business.” CEOs have also recognized that sustainability needs to be incorporated in company values and cascaded down into the ranks.

Audience: Chief Financial Officers, VPs of sustainability, executives in charge of environmental and health safety, and anyone seeking to manage issues of corporate citizenship and sustainability effectively.
