LUXEMBOURG CEO SUSTAINABILITY CLUB

The network of committed leaders

The rules of the economic game are starting to change due to its emergence. In order to be ready to face these challenges, the main actors will need to be prepared to identify these changes on the management model and on the long-term success of their company.

As we all know, CEOs play a crucial role in putting Social Responsibility at the top of companies' agendas.
The rules of the game are starting to change due to the emergence of new economic paradigms. To be ready to face these challenges, CEOs can provide the necessary vision to truly implement CSR at all levels.

This club’s objectives are as follows:

  • Provide access to new advances and insights in order to stimulate reflection on the conditions for transition to a sustainable and inclusive society
  • Raise Luxembourg leaders’ awareness about the emergence of new business paradigms to adapt to environmental and social constraints
  • Bring sustainability at a strategic level with the strong impulse of the CEOs

Luxembourg CEO Sustainability Club du 11 septembre 2018

An unprecedented joint commitment at the Luxembourg Sustainability Forum 2019! 

Many members of the CEO Club responded to IMS' call on September 11 by signing the Zero Single-Use Plastic Manifesto. The objective is simple: to eliminate single-use plastic from companies by the end of 2020. 121 tons of plastic waste per year could be avoided.

The 2019 edition of the forum was a landmark event by inviting the 54 signatory companies to the Manifesto, showing that it is possible to act in concert and stop using ultra-jetable plastic. To join the initiative and learn more.

WOMEN

The last dinner was hosted by Raphaël Liogier, philosopher and sociologist, on 24 April 2019.

His last book make waves. After the #MeToo movement, he questions with his book Descente au coeur du mâle, the very deep-rooted reasons underlying gender inequalities in our society. With him, the stereotypes that are at the root of the differences in destiny between genders, including of course in the workplace, have been decoded. Unique perspectives beyond traditional police statements to a new understanding of the feminine and masculine.
