Business Meetings & Workshops

Since 2007, S&Z has organized business meetings with the intention to both discuss current development and address challenges regarding CR and sustainability with company representatives, as well as to present potential solutions and best practice examples.

Participants typically include employees who are responsible for CR and sustainability topics in companies and industry associations. In order to maximize experience sharing and exchanging, we limit the group to 15-20 participants.

Furthermore, we regularly hold workshops in which we first present CR and sustainability topics, followed by in-depth business cases and other examples. In this way, the participants are able to obtain competencies and ideas, which can be readily applied to their own business context. Also, participants have the opportunity to develop a company-specific solution, supported by S&Z experts.

Additionally, S&Z offers training sessions and workshops customized to your industry and business challenges. The objectives can include increasing awareness of specific topics among employees and/or developing sustainability programs. Please contact us for further information.

Currently there are no Business Meetings & Workshops scheduled.

S&Z develops conferences to discuss current trends and potential solutions in a larger context with relevant stakeholders, as well as to jointly generate new insights. We work with notable partners to collaborate on and organize the conferences.

For example, S&Z developed six CR-centered conferences as part of the Euro Finance Week between 2006 and 2011, as well as the conference “Responsible Supply Chain Solutions”, which was conducted jointly with Sedex Global in 2014.
