Sustainable business is no longer about banning plastic water bottles from the office or arming your organisation with glossy reports.

These are useful, but small steps. Businesses must radically transform to support the regeneration of a thriving, resilient and adaptable society. But how can businesses continue to drive competitive advantage, as the pressure increases to fundamentally re-evaluate their purpose for the common good? 

Who should attend? 

This is an invitation-only event, designed for senior executives. As a delegate, you will have the chance to add your voice to the debate and network with key players from across business, government and academia.

Mike Coupe

Keynote speaker: Mike Coupe, CEO of Sainsbury's

Mike Coupe has been the Group Chief Executive Officer of Sainsbury’s since 2014. He has also served as an Executive Director since 2007 and has been a member of the Operating Board since October 2004. Mike has vast retail industry experience in trading, strategy, marketing, digital and online, as well as multi-site store experience.

Imperial College Business School’s fifth annual conference will explain why and how to experiment and innovate towards a new way of doing business centred around stakeholders. Top academics, business leaders and policymakers will bring together new economic models and practical experience to find ways businesses can improve human and environmental wellbeing.

Our key themes will include:

  • Stakeholder capitalism – what does this mean and how can it be created?
  • Developing an integrative and regenerative organisation – how can you frame and tackle this transformational journey?
  • Consumer, labour and investor constraints – how can these be successfully negotiated to create truly sustainable value for all? 

Re-thinking the role of business requires pioneering thinking and bold leadership at the highest level. This invite-only event has been specifically designed to inspire action and share knowledge with senior executives from some of the world’s leading organisations.
