How aligned are the big NGO, government and corporate agendas today? What are the points of agreement, and disagreement?

Clock icon 17:00 - 17:45
Since the 1990s NGOs have played an increasingly important role in driving corporate action in areas such as deforestation, living income, climate, plastics, and more. Major NGOs are undoubtedly an influential force on corporate governance. However, the corporate agenda has often fallen short from the demands of NGOs and campaigner groups. In this session we’ll have a candid conversation on the alignment (or lack thereof) between the big NGO and corporate agendas today. We’ll explore the crossovers and gaps between NGO expectations and current business practices and assess what a genuinely collaborative and constructive partnership looks like. We'll also bring in the policy perspective to comment on how these agendas align with those of government.
