Master Class for Executives on Ways to Embed Sustainable Agriculture Strategies in Companies

From 3 May 2011 to 4 May 2011 | Rollins College, Winterpark, Florida, USA

"Ensuring long-term supply of raw materials is today's key strategic issue for food and beverage companies. If we can't produce anymore, we can't sell anything to anyone. It won't matter how good our branding is, how talented our workforce, or how big and powerful the company. Sustainable agriculture is essential for ensuring long-term sustainability of our business."
(Quote from a director of manufacturing and supply chain in a global food & beverage company)

  • Have you ever wondered what sustainable agriculture really is and how relevant it is to your business function and unit?
  • Have you ever felt that managers in your company do not fully understand the risks of sourcing from unsustainable agriculture, or that the business opportunities of sustainable agriculture have not been fully exploited?
  • Have you ever wished that you had the language, tools and know-how to strategically embed sustainable agriculture more fully in your organization?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, our two-day master class is for you. Developed by IMD's Center for Corporate Sustainability Management (CSM) and the Sustainable Agriculture Initiative (SAI) Platform, the master class focuses on sustainable agriculture and its business relevance for companies, individual units and functions. "Embedding Sustainable Agriculture Strategies in Companies" is a highly interactive master class and will provide participants with an in-depth understanding of this crucial issue as well as tangible takeaways that will enable them to embed sustainable agriculture in their day-to-day activities.
