As an aftermath of my growing interest for Biodiversity issues (See our initiative with Julian Rode Biodiversity and Ethical Business), I was proposed to lead the academic organization of the 26th Alumni Sustainability Roundtable at Insead. We have prepared an interactive process to draw from the expertise of a series of prestigious speakers.

Business and Biodiversity: the Next Sustainability Challenge

23 September 2011

INSEAD, Fontainebleau Campus, France

There is a growing concern in business about biodiversity loss and change and about the risks and opportunities biodiversity entails for the bottom line. This roundtable will present and discuss the implications of biodiversity issues for the business world. In an interactive and participative process, participants will discover how biodiversity affects business through impacts and dependencies on natural resources. The purpose is also to identify critical trade-offs for society and business, and discover new ways of being smart in front of systemic interdependences. Improving our capacity to be part of the solution to one of the most comprehensive challenges the human species is facing is at the core of this debate.
