What if you asked your questions about sustainable development to the leaders of the largest international organizations? This is precisely what Sustainable Brands offers you with Hot Seats on April 23 and 24.

More and more consumers and citizens expect brands to engage in sustainable development, ecology, and the circular economy. They are waiting for brands to commit to building a more positive world, reducing their impact on the planet or improving society. Increasingly attentive to the commitment of companies, consumers are also increasingly suspicious of them and wondering about what they’re doing and what they might be hiding. As well, they wonder how companies are using their profits and how responsible they’re being with they manufacturing and across their supply chains, responsible for about 90% of companies’ environmental impacts. Yes, people’s trust in business has never been so low.

For brands and for the leaders of these companies, rebuilding a relationship of trust is more than important, it’s essential. That’s why some companies, at different paces, are starting to open up and to engage in co-creating approaches with their consumers and communities. So what if… What if you had the opportunity to meet some of these leaders? To ask directly them your questions? Well, this is the goal of the Hot Seats, an exceptional event organized in partnership with e-RSE.net on the 23rd and 24th o April at Sustainable Brands, the biggest European event on innovation and sustainable development. 19 top leaders of major international companies will be present to announce their commitments on various issues related to sustainable development, and they will answer your questions, live.

Hot Seats: Ask Your Questions About Sustainable Development To Great International Leaders

For this exceptional event, 19 business leaders or international organizations, all engaged in a process of positive transformation towards sustainable development, have agreed to take the floor. Everyone will have 20 minutes to express themselves on one of the big scenes of Sustainable Brands: overall, they’ll have 10 minutes to convince you and another 10 to answer your questions! All interventions will be broadcast live on our social networks and those of Sustainable Brands (Facebook and Twitter).
