Debate on the future role of business

WBCSD invites you to a debate on ‘The Role of Business in Tomorrow’s Society’ - Geneva, February 20. Some topics on the table include:

  • What principles should be observed in developing global supply chains, particularly when entering or leaving markets?
  • How can business play a more active role in improving framework conditions and infrastructure in developing countries?
  • What will be the role of business in providing pensions, health care, education and welfare in the future?
  • What more can business do in terms of pricing externalities such as common resources that have no owner?
  • What new business models are needed in poorer countries where conventional business models do not work?
