The format also offers a great network to strengthen relationships: a must do for any sustainability professional.”

“The edie Sustainability Leaders Forum was a successful interactive and immersive event that took place over two days. The Forum inspired leaders to participate and helped us to think through how to take action both within our organization and externally on a global scale. We not only shared best practices but also developed practical insights and potential strategies to benefit future generations. It was on-point and very beneficial.”

SVP global CSR, Wyndham Worldwide

“The Sustainability Leaders Forum was again a great place to hear and share new ideas on all aspects of corporate sustainability. Importantly this was not just from sustainability professionals but from CEOs too. The panel discussions were also a great place to exchange ideas and challenge different views with lots of questions from the audience – so much better than endless PowerPoint charts!”
