Responsible Leadership in Times of Transformation | November 14th -16th 2018 in Cologne, Germany

Responsible Leadership in Times of Transformation

We live in unprecedented and uncertain times, and the role of business in society has changed significantly. Today, more than ever before, businesses have the responsibility to effect positive change in the world. This requires a fundamental reexamination of the way in which the world does business. The question remains, however, how should business leaders leverage current disruptive trends such as: Industry 4.0, Digitalization, AI, and IoT, to create positive social impact.

The 8th International Conference on Sustainability and Responsibility strives to answer this question by connecting academics, business professionals, and policymakers to engage in intellectual discourse and idea exchange on these pressing topics through a series of talks, discussions, and informal gatherings. We hope to move the yardsticks forward for responsible leadership during this age of transformation.

Humboldt-CSR-Conference Series History

The History of the Humboldt CSR Conference Series

For the first time since the conference’s inauguration in 2004, the series will be held in the beautiful city on the Rhine, Cologne. The conference will be hosted by the Center for Advanced Sustainable Management at the Cologne Business School, in cooperation with the Humboldt Universität zu Berlin and the Hamburg School of Business Administration.

Since its founding, the conference has served as a, “platform for multi-stakeholder dialogue”, and has become Europe’s Premier CSR and Sustainability conference. The conference’s success and its increasing relevance is not only reflected in the growing number of delegates, but also, and most importantly, in the breadth and caliber of the participants. The biennial conference has become a must-attend for leading academics, executives, and policymakers that seek to better understand the role of CSR and Sustainability in today’s increasingly complex and globalized economy.
