Innovation Forum conferences operate under the same philosophy:

1. Focussed debate

2. Senior participants

3. Candid dialogue

By bringing together the right people around a focused and engaging agenda, we’ll look to get to the crux of the key issues surrounding sustainability measurement and valuation. As the forum is held under Chatham House rule, participants are able to candidly share their own experiences and challenges, to help shape the discussion.

We hope you are able to join us in June. If you have any questions regarding the forum, please do get in touch.
