Save the Date: ASEAN Responsible Business Forum, 27-28 August 2018, Singapore

ARBF rev2

SAVE THE DATE and join us at the ASEAN Responsible Business Forum (ARBF) as we bring together key stakeholders from governments, ASEAN bodies, the private sector and civil society to engage in practical discussions about the future of businesses.

Together we will discover how companies can collectively advance and mainstream responsible and inclusive business across the three pillars of ASEAN, furthering efforts of ASEAN towards building a united, inclusive, people-centred, people-oriented, resilient and sustainable community.

ARBF will enhance the understanding of how responsible and inclusive business, as a cross-cutting issue, can help address key challenges faced by ASEAN, including human rights due diligence in the supply chains; business integrity and anti-corruption; financial inclusion; micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) development; climate change and environmental sustainability.

Through ARBF, we co-organisers, the ASEAN CSR Network and the ASEAN Business Advisory Council seek to identify practical strategies and share good practices on responsible and inclusive business that can be scaled up and replicated in the region.
