HEC Paris Social Business Conference 2013 “From the green line to the bottom line - Creating company value through sustainability”

22 March 2013

The HEC Paris Sustainable Business Conference (SBC) is a conference which brings together all facets of the HEC community. This annual flagship HEC event gathers the business community and students interested in understanding, informing, debating and collaborating to develop a sustainable economy.

First held in 2003, the SBC seeks to demonstrate how governments, corporations and communities can benefit from exacting positive change through sustainability. By bringing together enthusiastic student organisers from the top programmes of HEC Paris, renowned faculty, HEC Alumni and leaders from local and international businesses, the interactive forum has quickly differentiated itself among the various student-run sustainability events and conferences around the world. 

HEC Paris celebrates the 10th anniversary of its SBC in 2013!

 This year, HEC SBC is organized by HEC MBA Council and with the support of BeCitizen, SnO Research Center and GDF Suez Chair. 

The agenda of the SBC 2013 is “From the Green Line to the Bottom Line: Creating Company Value through Sustainability”. The conference aims to emerge as a networking platform for professionals, entrepreneurs, academics, media and students who are committed to raising sustainability issues in business. Companies are challenged to integrate sustainability into their core business practices: ensuring social and environmental initiatives also creates internal benefits for the company. There is participation of more than 30 prominent experts in sustainability, including business leaders, sustainability professionals, NGOs and academics at the event.
