Conference on Sustainable Innovation - 2019


Future decision makers must understand their impact and responsibility when planning their social and economic development. Since 2016 an increasing number of companies have integrated the UN Global Goals of Sustainable Development (SDGs) into their business activities. Partnerships with NGOs and/or political institutions allow them to reach more sustainable results.

ESCP is committed to the Agenda 2030 and has integrated the SDGs into the curriculum to train future managers. We believe future decision makers must understand their responsibility in relation to their social and economic impact.

The Conference on Sustainable Innovation is part of this training. Since 2017 it has allowed businesses, political institutions, and civil society to reflect on their projects related to the SDGs and sustainability, and to contribute to the education of young talents.

# Conference Participants
