Sustainable production - the business sector as an actor for sustainable development
Creating incentives for companies to make their production to more sustainable solutions and take greater social responsibility requires that decision-makers, researchers and the business sector think in new and different ways. At the conference, these actors met to show what is already being done and get inspiration and new ideas for productive solutions.
The production chain is becoming increasingly complex, and corporate social and environmental responsibility increasingly far-reaching. Companies are responsible for the direct and indirect impact that their areas of operation have on people and the environment. This covers everything from the use of chemicals and water management to evaluating ecosystem services.
