There’s been a major push in recent years from tech leaders toward sustainability. Leaders recognize that not only are sustainable businesses more profitable than conventional ones, but they also perform better during times of economic turbulence and uncertainty. A study from A.T. Kearney during The Great Recession tells us sustainable businesses outperformed their less-sustainable counterparts over a six-month period by 15% during the previous massive downturn.

SaaS businesses looking to survive and thrive in the future should focus on sustainability (if they aren’t already) to make their business calamity-proof. In this session, Michael Denham will sit down with Charles Assaf, Co-Founder & CEO at Novisto and Stephany Lapierre, Founder and CEO from Teal book to discuss ways leaders can create and execute a solid ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) strategy. They’ll talk about:

  • How to develop an ESG strategy.
  • Why is it so important.
  • What the benefits of a strong ESG strategy are.
  • How to measure ESG performance and impact.
  • And more!
