Responsible Business Initiative : What should my company implement? What is expected?

  • Wednesday 30 June 2021 12:00-13:30
  • Online
  • Organisation : CCIG, in partnership with KPMG and STSA

Responsible business has become a buzz word. Everyone speaks about a better future and it is now expected from companies to measure and improve the consequences that their business has on the society, the environment and the climate.

In Switzerland, citizens voted on November 29th, 2020 on the “Responsible Business” Initiative. Voters have rejected the Initiative but accepted the counter-project. The Federal Council is implementing application ordinances.

What does it concretely mean for your company? What should you implement, and what is not mandatory? What are the consequences if you are not compliant?

A broad regulatory change is coming and will be a major step for many companies. Our speakers will guide you through this new landscape and provide concrete advices.
