NYU Stern Center for Sustainable Business presents the 2023 Practice Forum

Sustainability in Practice: Applying the financial case for sustainability investment

The annual Practice Forum hosted by the NYU Stern Center for Sustainable Business is an industry-leading event convening investor and corporate sustainability leaders to discuss the latest research and insights on operationalizing and monetizing sustainability. This year’s event is generously sponsored by Glenmede, Investindustrial, KPMG, and Qintess, with media partner Financial Times.

To date, CSB’s Practice Forum stood out from similar events by focusing on the financial case for sustainability, demonstrating why it’s good for business. For our sixth annual event, we will apply these learnings to how to realize these opportunities in performance and profit. 

Early registration discounts are open for limited in-person tickets and livestream options. Student discounts are available-- e-mail sustainablebusiness@stern.nyu.edu.
