ISEAL – Global Sustainability Standards Conference, 27-28 June 2017

The 2017 Global Sustainability Standards Conference will take place at the World Trade Center Zürich, Switzerland.

It will bring together over 400 sustainability leaders and experts from NGOs, government, business and academia to discuss the theme of ‘The future of trust’. With the emergence of new initiatives, new technologies, new expectations, how are standards and certification systems rising to the challenge of doing more while maintaining credibility? Through the lens of specific topics, issues and case studies from a range of sectors, we will explore changing stakeholder perspectives and expectations around trust.

The event consists of an activation session and cocktail reception on 27 June; a full day of plenaries, breakout sessions and networking on 28 June; and a Community Day on 29 June for ISEAL members and subscribers only.

This international event offers a unique opportunity to meet, learn from, and share with over 400 sustainability leaders and experts from standards, businesses, NGOs and governments who support the uptake of credible sustainability standards.
