SHANGHAI, November 2, 2010 – CEOs and representatives from some 200 global businesses convened today in Shanghai for the annual Council meeting of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD). The meeting focused attention on the emerging “Green Race” to develop innovative business solutions designed for an increasingly resource constrained world. WBCSD members talked about ways to accelerate this development within their companies and within the countries in which they operate.

“The Green Race is no longer a nice-to-have option. Both countries and companies are beginning to understand that measures to stimulate economic recovery and growth need to be green”, WBCSD Chairman Jorma Ollila told the articipants. “Not only is the world population set to grow to over 9 billion by 2050, but the average living standard is also improving. Couple these developments with limited available resources and it becomes clear that we have no choice but to find ways to grow which are low carbon and resource efficient. It would be disastrous if, in our desire to restart the economy as quickly as possible, we lose sight of this reality. Rather than building on the lessons from the past, we’d simply be setting ourselves up for the next problem; a problem that will be much larger.”
Klewel webcasted a keynote given by Pamela Thomas-Graham, Chief Talent, Branding & Communications Officer and member of the Executive Board at Credit Suisse AG at IMD Lausanne Business School on People and the Brand: Building a Winning Culture in the Financial Industry. The speaker did not make use of any slides. This video has been created with the collaboration of Thierry Weber well known in Switzerland for his work on video and the web.
What drives competitive advantage and differentiation in a highly regulated industry? The debates initiated by the recent financial and economic crisis on regulation and macro-economic developments make it easy to lose sight of two of the most important variables in any economic equation: people and the brand. Please join Pamela Thomas-Graham, Chief Talent, Branding & Communications Officer and member of the Executive Board at Credit Suisse AG as she explores these key drivers of the bank’s winning business strategy.
