The world is facing major challenges in energy, sustainability, and responsible investment. The transition to clean energy and environmentally and socially responsible investment is gaining traction but there are several obstacles for success. The first challenge is ensuring an equitable transition to clean energy, benefiting everyone and not just a select few. Governments, businesses, and individuals must take action to make this happen. The second challenge is the lack of transparency from corporations on environmental impact and sustainability practices, leading to a cycle of inaction. Increased transparency is necessary to break the cycle and encourage companies to take meaningful action. The third challenge is the performance of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) investment, facing criticism for not driving enough change and decreased performance in some ESG funds. Continued improvements are necessary for ESG investing to deliver positive change and financial returns.
The theme of this year’s event, “Driving Transformational Change Beyond Greenwashing”, will focus on inspiring participants to discuss and discover transformational ESG & CSR strategies beyond conventional thinking. The conference will also address the challenges facing us today and the need for climate-friendly solutions and technologies, including electric vehicles, high tech farming, sustainable supply chains, and nature-based solutions. With thought leaders from various industries and hundreds of senior executives and CSR & ESG professionals from around the world, the event promises to be a memorable experience. The conference will conclude with a memorable eco tour on day two.

The world’s leading thought leadership event on CSR- The Global CSR & ESG Awards will host the 15th year in 2023 at The Novotel Danang Premier Han River Vietnam. 8:00am to 7:00 pm (GMT +7) on the 27th of July 2023. Today humanity is at a crossroads: the path we choose now will determine the world that future generations will inherit. The ways of thinking, working, and living that have shaped modern life and modern business have brought beneﬁts to many. But they’ve also created a climate emergency, devastated natural systems, and entrenched vast inequalities between people that increasingly divide and limit us. It’s clear that sustainability efforts to date are not delivering the rate and scale of progress we need. If we are to create a world in which more than nine billion people will be able to live well, within planetary boundaries. Business is critical in determining whether we’re to be successful in this transition. Tinkering around the edges won’t do – wide-reaching transformations of how we live and, crucially, how business operates, are required: from reinventing our current model of capitalism to building greater resilience and adaptive capacity.
To unlock these changes at the pace required we need to shift the underlying paradigm of business to adopt a just and regenerative mindset, embedding this into a new way of making decisions. The success of this business transformation will both be dependent upon a supportive operating context and be enabled by the actions that trailblazing businesses can take to make this supportive context more likely. Adopting a just and regenerative approach means embracing the power of nature to renew and regenerate, understanding that humans are a fundamental part of nature, and respecting everyone’s universal rights and potential to thrive. This challenges us to go beyond our current extractive models to recognise a fundamental quality of all living beings and ecosystems – the ability to regenerate, replenish and create the conditions for more life.
The theme of this year’s event, “Looking Beyond Net Zero: A Just and Regenerative Mindset” will inspire participants to discuss and discover ESG & CSR strategies by corporation and stakeholders. The conference will also focus on how the challenges facing us today will inevitably hasten the pace for climate friendly solutions and technologies including electric vehicles, high tech farming, sustainable supply chains and nature-based solutions. Throughout history, whenever humanity is faced with tremendous challenges and unexpected upheavals, the speed of creativity and innovation accelerates, ensuring the survival and resilience of our human race.
The 15th Annual 2023 Global CSR & ESG Summit & Awards™ will invite some of the thought leaders of our time from various industries to share some of the most innovative ideas for environmental protection, community empowerment, gender equality and workplace diversity, supply chain transparency, corporate transparency, brand activism and technology for social good. Joined by hundreds of senior executives and CSR & ESG professionals from the region and the rest of the world, this event promises to be another unforgettable experience for everyone. Lastly, as always, we will conclude the conference with our signature touch on day two which will be a memorable eco tour.
See you my friends!
