Sustainability Leaders Forum (SLF) is a SSV program aimed at building the capacity and effectiveness of sustainability leaders by sharing best practices and presenting expert knowledge about sustainability. SLF provides a platform to share experiences, identify common challenges and solutions and build expertise.
Employees can be a powerful force to move the sustainability needle in companies and spread sustainability thinking in hard-to-reach functional areas of the company. Come for this SLF event, bring along sustainability inclined employees, and learn from the success stories of companies that have made notable gains, and strategize on how to take sustainability to the next level in your company. Three presentations (10-15 minutes each) will be followed by six 5 minute presentations on commuting solutions, followed by 15-20 minutes of discussion in groups of 6-10 people, each of which will include one of the speakers.
