Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability

What We do

Consumers and employees alike are becoming more and more savvy about where they work or spend their money. While many businesses are fulfilling parts of the model—few are truly embedding sustainability in the business model and responding to the needs and expectations of all stakeholder groups. 

We bring together a diverse group of business leaders to explore the challenges faced by Canadian corporate responsibility and sustainability leaders. Organizations need current information on the most effective tools, resources and thought leadership in the corporate responsibility and sustainability space. This is where The Conference Board of Canada can help.

Executive Networks

Our executive networks offer members a collaborative community where experienced practitioners in their respective fields with similar roles and responsibilities in organizations and industries across Canada discuss trends, challenges and success stories to continue to build on and improve best practices in their roles.
