As the global population grows more people will need access to education, food, transport, energy, clean water and sanitation. This will not only cause an increase in energy demand but will also see a need for global supply chains and sustainability of operations to be effectively monitored and optimized.
For ASEAN to achieve its aim to become the 4th largest economy in the world by 2030, ASEAN businesses must demonstrate leadership through decisive action on sustainability issues impacting on the future.
This challenge will be discussed in depth at this year’s 2020 Corporate Sustainability Virtual Summit, which LRQA is proud to support.
During the two day conference, which takes place on 23-24 November, experts will discuss why making continuous investment in sustainability is important for crisis recovery efforts in ASEAN economies, seen through the lens of corporations and SMEs.
