Chatham House Responsible Business Conference -  29th February

Priorities, practices and principles in a digital age


Ever-increasing consumer, investor and employee awareness continues to drive the business case for responsible behaviour, and recent events have highlighted the growing need for corporate accountability and transparency from C-suite behaviour to global supply chain management. 


The third annual Chatham House Responsible Business conference will explore key questions, including:

  • Who will lead the corporate responsibility agenda? What is driving responsible behaviour? 
  • To what extent has there been a policy retreat in this space? What has been the response to this, and what does it mean for different roles and responsibilities? 
  • What are the new priorities for responsible business in a digital age? How have recent events demonstrated a shift in expectations? 
  • How can policy-makers and companies foster the integration of human rights across global supply chains, international trade and regional business operations?
  • What is the role of corporate governance and leadership in setting standards and promoting responsible business? Is this a new era of corporate activism?
