Webinar 25 Nov 2020: Asia Trade Insight Hour - Sustainable trade: Moving forward from COVID-19
One could argue that a lack of consideration for sustainability was a significant contributor to the current situation. To regain faith in trade, it’s now more important than ever that governments and businesses trade in a way that not only generates economic benefits but also strengthens social capital and provides for environmental stewardship.
What are the lessons to be learned from COVID-19 on how to keep trade sustainable? What is the best way to implement sustainability practices after COVID-19? How would it affect your business strategy? What changes would you need to make in your supply chains? How can you make sustainable trade profitable?
In this virtual session, the Economist Intelligence Unit will present the latest Sustainable Trade Index, which evaluates 19 Asian economies and the United States on three pillars established by the Brundtland Commission for sustainable development: economic growth, social equality, and environmental protection. A discussion will follow about the impact of sustainable trade on the global economy and the changes that sustainability practices will bring to businesses.
