Global Sustain announces Yearbook 2014/15

Tuesday, 18 Nov 2014

Seven years passed since Global Sustain presented its first Yearbook, triggering a global discussion regarding important sustainability issues.

This year, Global Sustain chose the theme “The Power of Collaboration” since partnerships are more than ever needed in order to address universal challenges.

Global developments and expectations in economy, environment and technology sectors are among the factors that promote the formation of partnerships, since individual organisations cannot act alone. These partnerships come in many forms, ranging from alliances between businesses and non-governmental organisations (NGOs), to goverments and civil society and they create shared value for all stakeholders.

This Yearbook will address, among others, the following topics:

  • Win-win partnerships
  • Facilitating supplier collaboration
  • Delivering long-lasting, mutual benefits with innovative strategic partnerships
  • Joining forces for human rights and transparency issues
  • Quantifying and measuring partnerships’ true value
  • Collaboration between academics, companies, NGOs and governments
  • The impact of business goals on engagement in social partnerships
  • Encouraging and incentivising employees to engage into collaborative actions
  • Transforming stakeholder dialogue into stakeholder collaboration
  • Communicating collaborations effectively
  • Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and partnerships
