B4E: Caring for the Environment Can be Good for Business
Companies face the monumental challenge of adapting to a new economic environment where climate change could alter the very nature of growth itself. Singapore-based company Global Initiatives -- with the support of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and Global Compact, the world’s largest voluntary corporate responsibility initiative -- organised the Business for the Environment (B4E) Global Summit 2008 which took place in Singapore earlier this year. Singapore Management University is a knowledge partner of Global Initiatives. Its International Trading Institute@SMU provided student rapporteurs for the summit.
