Sept. 8, at 1:00 PM ET | Strategy & Impact: GX Spotlight on India | Webinar

India accounts for nearly half of the Covid-19 cases across the globe and one in four deaths, according to the World Health Organization. Experts say that the actual number of cases and deaths due to the second wave of Covid-19 could be up to five times higher than what official data shows. 

Join CECP’s Global Exchange Partner Spotlight on India to hear how companies, foundations and social organizations responded to the immediate needs spurring from the Covid-19 crisis in India, and the ways they are continuing to offer long-term support to the country’s healthcare system and citizens on their journey to recovery.

Sept. 15-17 | Sustainable Brands Turkey ’21 | Virtual Event

As we return to a post-pandemic world, the urgent need for transformational change on a global scale is undeniable. Recovering, vulnerable economies add another multifaceted challenge to a long list of sustainability crises we are facing – from climate, to water, to deforestation, to biodiversity loss, to inequality, to injustice, to corruption and disinformation.

SB Turkey’21, the flagship conference for purpose-driven business, is the longest-standing Sustainable Brands event. SB Turkey’21 will be held on September 15th-17th virtually.

Better brands are moving past ‘doing less harm’ to drive regenerative models that renew, restore, and grow. Attend Sustainable Brands’ flagship conference for the latest insights to drive better business practices at your organization.
