"Rise of the Responsible Corporation"
Keynote presentation by Associate Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship, Ioannis Ioannou.

In his talk, Prof. Ioannou will discuss his recent work in the domain of corporate sustainability that provides empirical evidence for the emergence of the “sustainable organization”; a new type of the modern business organization that genuinely and effectively integrates environmental and social issues into its business model, strategy, and organizational structure. He will provide evidence of the significant long-term outperformance of this type of organization compared to the traditional corporate form, both in terms of operating as well as stock market performance and evidence regarding the fundamental innovations that are needed in order for an organization to become a sustainable one. Finally, Prof. Ioannou will discuss the links between corporate sustainability and capital markets as they pertain to investment analyst recommendations, and more broadly, as they relate to the realization of value in public equity markets through a commitment to sustainability.

This event is £55 for alumni and guests, including food and drink for the evening.

The event is organised by the France Alumni Club. To find out the latest about events in Paris, make sure you’re signed up to the club on Portal.
