Focus on sustainable business growth, advancing businesses via innovation and collaboration
DuPont has announced hosting its Executive Forums in Dubai, bringing together business executives, academics and government officials to focus on accelerating sustainable business growth through innovation.
The two-day event kicked off on September 24 with a Safety & Sustainability Forum focused on how businesses can make improvements in health, safety and the environment leading to sustainable growth, which included panel discussions, followed by the annual DuPont Safety & Sustainability awards ceremony, which recognised outstanding initiatives aimed at enhancing workplace safety, sustainability and incident prevention in Europe, and the EMEA region.
On September 25, DuPont hosted the CEO Forum, an invitation-only event for approximately 100 CEOs from multinational companies, to collaborate on best practices related to sustainable business growth. DuPont Chair and CEO Ellen Kullman opened the forum with a keynote address focused on building a sustainable economy through collaboration, followed by a series of panel discussions.
“Uncertainty in the global market, combined with new pressures to be more competitive and agile, is creating new challenges for business leaders,” said Jim Weigand, President, DuPont Sustainable Solutions. “The DuPont Executive Forums are designed to give business leaders a chance to collaborate on ways to grow our businesses sustainably, while balancing shareholder accountability with stakeholder concerns, and company success with social progress.”
