Corporate Citizenship

Monday 30 April 2018
Working group meeting
AkzoNobel Specialty Chemicals Global Headquarters, Christian Neefestraat 2, 1077 WW Amsterdam
16:00 - 18:30 (local time)

The EACD Working Group Corporate Citizenship would like to invite you to a meeting with Simon Henzell-Thomas, IKEA Group’s Global Head of Public Affairs.

Simon will share with us how IKEA Group is incorporating corporate citizenship into its business via its People & Planet Positive strategy. Simon will talk about what drives IKEA Group’s corporate citizenship agenda, how the company deals with societal challenges, how they have embedded it in their operations and how they communicate about it in their external communications and towards stakeholders. At this first meeting of the revamped EACD Working Group Corporate Citizenship, we will also look at some initial results coming out of the survey on the state of corporate citizenship. Thanks for those members that completed our survey last Fall. Haven’t done so yet? Then don’t hesitate and fill in our survey - it will only take you 3 minutes.

The event is free of charge but due to limited places please register using the form below.
