2013/14: “Beyond Borders”

Topic

In face of shifting economies and global needs and after six years of consecutive publishing success, Global Sustain once more lays the foundations for a constructive dialogue, highlighting critical issues. The intensifying globalisation of the world’s economies has made extroversion and international business involvement particularly relevant in terms of national and global prosperity.Organisations that have saturated national markets, look beyond borders and navigate through the seas of globalisation and universal citizenship, with outstanding results. Products and services enter foreign markets, investors are attracted, innovation is untapped, employment is created, collaborations are encouraged and finally economic performance and social prosperity are achieved on the whole.

Special Topics

  • Exporting activity and economic performance
  • Exporting know-how and value creation
  • The role of financial institutions in supporting extroversion
  • Responsible supply chain in a global marketplace
  • Extroversion effects on global sustainability
  • Business colonialism and human rights
  • Partnerships building among countries and corporations
  • Addressing global risks through responsible investing
  • International development and social impact
  • Corporate citizenship in underserved markets
  • Organisational excellence in building global enterprises
  • International collaboration for universal sustainability issues
  • Assessing a company’s/organisation’s geographical footprint
  • Coping with diversity in a globalised environment
  • Exporting sustainable tourism
