Continuing its success from last year, The Multi-Chamber of Commerce led by the Franco-Thai Chamber of Commerce, Netherlands-Thai Chamber of Commerce and Thai-Swedish Chamber of Commerce, has arranged the 4th Sustainability for Business Forum (SBF20), a half-day forum providing expertise and networking opportunities for Thailand-based businesses to support and promote their sustainability engagements under the latest topics in responding the COVID-19 pandemic for a ‘Green Recovery’. This forum is co-lead by Phitrust Asia and will take place on October 8th.
Three tracks of presentations and discussions aligned with the current situation will be held in parallel:
> Smart, Sustainable and Resilient Cities,
> Sustainable Lifestyles – Fashion & Beauty, and
> Food of the Future
The event will end with Executive Panel – Sustainability as a Corporate Strategy led by foremost companies in Thailand who have been running their businesses with sustainability throughout COVID-19 such as executives from L’Oréal Thailand, Symbior Solar and NRF. Moreover, inspiring business practitioners and service providers will bring up-to-date insights, bold ideas, innovations, business solutions and applications of the latest sustainable trends.
Armelle Le Bihan, Multi-Chamber Sustainability Committee Director, Founder and CEO of Green Building Consulting & Engineering, coordinator of the track Smart city and the panel on sustainable lifestyles, said: “We cannot talk about sustainability without talking about the COVID-19 crisis. Firstly, because the two are deeply intertwined it makes us realize that the health of our environment is a prerequisite to ours. Secondly, because while the global economy has been brought to a halt, environmental and social distress have not been on lockdown. It is now more crucial than ever to rethink our businesses within our ecological limits and in respect of human welfare to foster their long-term resiliency. SBF20 will be an opportunity to explore ideas for a ‘new normal’ written in greener and more inclusive terms.”
Henri de Reboul, Multi-Chamber Sustainability Committee Director, founder and CEO of Phitrust Asia, an impact investor company, coordinator of the track Food of the future and sustainable lifestyles, added: “We are all looking for positive and hopeful perspectives. The three topics SBF20 is addressing are exciting and promising aspects of businesses for the future. How to make our cities, our food and our consumption safe, clean and benefiting the economy and the people? The answer to this question will attract companies from different sectors, their partners, service providers and investors. Sustainability can stimulate innovation, address growing consumer expectations and help find profitable avenues for many companies.”
