“Business as Usual is Dead” – Thought-provoking Think & Drink with Philippe Joubert
We are excited to welcome Philippe Joubert, Founder and CEO of Earth on Board and former President of Alstom Power, to our upcoming Think & Drink on Monday.
As a business executive focused on building sustainability into the heart of business strategies to enable long-term growth – and Founder and CEO of Earth on Board -, Mr. Joubert will share unique insights from his first-hand experience:
- Nature is no longer free and unlimited, how can we do business now
- Why not valuing Natural Capital in the business model or acknowledging Climate Change and its risks is economically stupid, socially unacceptable and legally dangerous
- The role management and the board must play in moving focus from short-term profits to creating long-term value for society
Philippe Joubert is Founder and CEO of Earth on Board, an ecosystem of sustainability actors dedicated to informing and helping Boards to put sustainability at the centre of the company’s strategy, achieving an Earth Competent Board. The education element of the ecosystem is built and offered in partnership with Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership.

He is also Senior Advisor for International Development at World Energy Council (WEC). He acts as an advisor to the CEOs of several major global companies on sustainable development and sits on various boards and advisory boards as a Non-Executive Director.
