This event explored how diverse groups of business leaders and subject experts took action to break through traditional sustainability barriers with strategic collaborators. We learned about the successful solutions they implemented, and how each one addressed critical issues impacting business, society, and the ecosphere. With brave candour, each one also considered what they would do differently if they could do it again.
Unlike traditional scripted executive gatherings, the RSI Insights Exchange was designed to be an interactive and open discovery of key issues, queries, ideas and practices inspired by the featured business and sustainability collaborators and peers.
This event built on what leaders asked for at our October 2012 Leadership Exchange:
- Focus on taking action.
- Collaboration with unexpected partners, or with traditional partners in unexpected ways.
- Speak the language of business decision-makers.
- Scalable solutions that break through barriers of sustainability.
Participants went back to work armed with new and diverse perspectives on how to optimize collaboration to break through sustainability barriers, along with an expanded network of peers, contacts and resources.
Highlights of some of the featured collaboration stories can be viewed in these Corporate Knights articles, written by RSI’s Founder & Chair.
