About this event

The International Sustainability Conference (ISC) is an annual dialogue-to-action forum hosted by Lagos Business School Sustainability Centre that brings various stakeholders together to advance sustainable development through business. This conference is a platform to inspire business leaders to embed sustainability and responsible business practices in their strategy and operations to result in positive impact not only on business performance but on the society as well.

Why Global Trade and Sustainability?

The achievement of Sustainable Development across developed, emerging and developing economics will be largely dependent on collaboration, global trade is clearly an engine for collaboration for economic growth and poverty reduction. It is therefore an important means to drive results for our collective ambitions documented in frameworks like the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for 2030 and the Africa Agenda 2063. The expansion of international trade and the increasing integration of global value chains raise questions about how trade and sustainability interact, complement and hinder each other. It is evident how global trade can support the economic pillar of sustainability. Global trade has played a significant role in reducing poverty, creating jobs and promoting economic growth. However, economic systems exist with society and the planetary ecosystem, in light of this, the 2021 International Sustainability Conference will focus on the relationship between global trade and the 3 pillars of sustainability - environmental, social and economic development. The Conference is convened by LBS Sustainability Centre (LBSSC) and Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Africa
