Brief Introduction of the Lecture:
Our world is suffering the worse crisis never existed, the environmental one. Business can’t be out of this tremendous challenge. Why? Because we are humans and we have to assume our part of responsibility. But also, because following the correct way to recover balance with our planet, we have a lot of business opportunities. Business and sustainability are not enemies, they need each to each other.
