In line with Earth Day, EcoKnights, Malaysia’s home-grown, not-for-profit environmental organisation, will be hosting a forum on building a sustainable business.

The forum themed, “Corporate Leadership: Battle of the Big Ideas For Sustainability” will be held on April 22, at Whitebox, MAP Publika in Solaris Dutamas, from 10am to 1pm, and will feature five key industry leaders who have implemented sustainable practices in their business.

Participants will hear from Sage Software managing director Michael Cho; Hijjas Kasturi Associates director Serina Hijjas; Frangipani Langkawi Resort and Spa Hotel managing director Anthony Wong; Digi Telecommunications corporate responsibility principal, Philip Ling, and Tanamera Tropical Spa Products managing director, Faisal Fadzil.

“The forum and panel discussion is a demonstration of how some industry leaders have become advocates of sustainability. The passionate speakers who will be featured will share their insights on how they have taken both small and large steps to implement environmental initiatives. EcoKnights is constantly on the lookout for ideas that will aid the rapid transition to a safer climate and sustainable society. We believe that corporations, even those in the small and medium industries, can lead the way with their cutting-edge ideas,” said EcoKnights’ president and founder, Yasmin Rasyid.

In addition to ideas, the panel discussion will also discuss challenges, innovative strategies and practical solutions for a sustainable future in the corporate arena.

Sage Software, a leading supplier of business management software with a customer base of over 500,000 users, will share how it adopted a change in packaging and product form as part of its sustainable strategy.

Cho said: “We are excited to be sharing our story with other industry leaders. Our database of customers is primarily made up of small-medium enterprises. We believe that it is entirely possible for SMEs to take small, simple steps towards building a sustainable business. By organising EcoKnight’s Corporate Leadership forum, we hope to bring that message out to the marketplace.”

The forum is open to all and would be most beneficial for entrepreneurs, startups and SMEs.
