About the BSR Conference
Ranked at the top of corporate responsibility events globally, the annual BSR Conference attracts more than 1,000 senior business executives, entrepreneurs, and distinguished leaders from the public sector and civil society.
Now entering its 20th year, the Conference provides participants unrivaled opportunities to engage with sustainability leaders and practitioners to build the business of a better world.
Plenary sessions feature global corporate leaders at the forefront of responsible business whose dynamic leadership strategies are boosting the bottom line and benefiting the world. Presenters follow a unique format which allows participants to get up close and personal with these industry luminaries. The I3 plenary presentations feature innovative and inspirational speakers from different aspects of society who motivate, inform and encourage participants with their extraordinary stories.
Outside of the plenary presentations and I3 speakers, there are over 35 breakout sessions scheduled over three days. With two types of sessions, the customizable agenda allows you to plan your schedule with a variety of topics and session lengths that suit your needs. The two-hour working sessions thoroughly examine a diverse range of topics by integrating presentations, case studies, and group discussions into a collaborative, workshop-style setting. One-hour conversations present an intimate forum for participants to hear from and engage with a cross section of global business and sustainability leaders who are addressing new ideas and practical solutions for sustainable business.
In addition to the sessions, the BSR Conference provides ample time for networking at meals, afternoon breaks, evening receptions and after-hour events.
