Responsible Business 2017

Date: 16 November 2017 09.00 - 17.15

Venue: Chatham House, 10 St James's Square, London SW1Y 4LE

Recent political transitions have demonstrated a sense of dissatisfaction with the global economy and current business practices, and amidst continued economic uncertainty there is a concern that corporate responsibility and holding businesses to account over business practices and human rights have dropped to the bottom of national policy agendas.

Consumer and investor opinion, and a need to demonstrate long-term strategic vision, are all critical to the competitiveness of multinational corporations, so that they remain viable and commercially sustainable. In the perceived absence of national-level institutional capacity and drive, many will look to corporations to foster the integration of human rights, sustainability, transparency and other societally advantageous norms across global supply chains, international trade and regional business operations.

In-depth assessment is required of exactly what expectations stakeholders have in contrast to existing practices; in which sectors and regions alternative leadership is necessary - and where it is already emerging; and what are the most effective legislative and industrial strategies, and the accelerants for greater corporate responsibility.

The second annual Chatham House 'Responsible Business' conference will explore these themes with insights from policy-makers, business leaders and industry experts.

To enable as open a debate as possible, this conference will be held under the Chatham House Rule
