EY offices, Florentinum (Building D), Na Florenci 2116/15, Praha 1

Companies that prioritize sustainability outperform their peers in the long run. So apart from ethical and legal (compliance) drivers, there are also commercial advantages to taking the lead in sustainability. 
Are there any best practices? Can you still gain a first-movers advantage in your market? We have asked two experts in the field to guide us in the right direction: Markéta Horková from EY Czech Republic, and Elisabeth Gabalová from Salacia Solutions CZ. Their presentations were both inspiring and entertaining, and for that deserve a big thank you!
