Sustainable Business in a transforming Asia

Asia is home to more than half the world’s people and is growing in political, economic and cultural influence. Understanding the landscape, how the region is changing and the role of business in accelerating sustainable systems transformation, is central to WBCSD’s Vision2050.

Realizing systems transformation will only be possible if Asia does its part. This session will demonstrate how the major economies in Asia are changing, demonstrate business approaches that have proven effective in the region and discuss how WBCSD can help accelerate sustainable business action and outcomes across this critical geography.
