The ACSC 2021 Sustainability Talk Series is a 3-part talk series which will slowly introduce participants without any foundational knowledge on Corporate Sustainability (CS) to it by answering the questions: “What?”, “So What?”, and “What Now?”.
The first talk entitled “Corporate Sustainability in the New Normal” will provide the basics of CS, debunk the usual misconceptions on CS, and give participants context into how CS is right now especially during our pandemic. The second talk is called “Leapfrogging Technology: Sustainability Through Data-Driven Decisions” and will give participants a data-driven way they and businesses can determine the next steps into becoming more sustainable for the future. Lastly, the third talk, “Creative Inclusion: Contributing to a Culture of Product Stewardship”, will reflect on the role of businesses beyond profit especially in how we can move current businesses to where we want them to be.

In today’s situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, one’s health and safety are of utmost importance. With the need to take safety precautions, there has been a rise in the plastic consumption of the Philippines. This talk will go into the detrimental impact of plastic on the environment, the importance of continually striving to practice sustainability despite numerous challenges, and the different ways businesses are incorporating CS practices in the New Normal.
This talk explores the use of technology as a tool to solve organizational and societal problems while simultaneously moving us to a more sustainable future. With newer forms of technology continuing to rise as society progresses and advances, old traditions must be converted to innovations that maximize eco-efficiency. Hence, there is value for companies to leverage their technological innovations to better the community and to lead in their respective industries.
As societies face a growing number of development challenges, businesses today are called to move beyond profit. In this talk, we’ll explore the shifting role of businesses in society and how they themselves can take the step forward to advocate for product stewardship — through improved stakeholder involvement, extended producer responsibility, and good corporate governance. This talk will also shed light on how doing so opens up opportunities within the business to improve financially, ultimately, gaining a competitive advantage.
