SEC Fall Event

ESG – Necessary Evil or Business Opportunity

Join us on October 30, 2024, at the Zunfthaus zur Schmiden in Zurich for an enlightening event that shines a light on the complexities of ESG regulations within the European Union and Switzerland. This event, organized in collaboration with OBT, the Family Business Circle Switzerland and Ariel Davidoff, will share the newest information about ESG standards, reporting requirements and corporates responsibilities. At the same time we will investigate if there isn’t a substantial business opportunity in all this and will profite from two success stories by two leading ESG “Champions” Holcim and SkyCell.

Gain exclusive insights from the ZHAW 2024 Entrepreneurial Survey, completed by over 400 executives, primarily C-level, focusing on ESG issues. Furthermore, explore detailed ESG requirements, solutions and best practices through an expert talk from the OBT partner in charge,  hear firsthand company experiences (Holcim and SkyCell), and engage in a dynamic panel discussion. The evening will then turn into a fine Apéro Rich and the opportunity to network!

We look forward to welcoming you in the Zunfthaus zur Schmiden and to deepen your understanding of ESG, network with high-level peers, and discover whether ESG represents only a regulatory burden or represents also a strategic business advantage.
