Dear Friends,

Collapsing economies, extreme variations in climate, burgeoning unemployment, tainted products, scarce resources, melting glaciers, shrinking bio-diversity, sinking oceans and scarcity of fresh water and wetlands are indicators that we are undergoing a period of unprecedented global uncertainty.

Is this the new face of the normal, or will mankind prove capable of responding adequately to the Challenge of sustainability? ‘Sustainability’ has become a wide ranging term that can be applied to almost every facet of life. Sustainability is defined as the capacity of an eco-system to endure in the long run. The 1st Global Conference on Sustainability held in London in 2010, identified Corporate Sustainability as our core development challenge, while aggressively pursuing opportunities for growth.

For business, there is a potential for long-term sustainability of the company's wellbeing, which means proofing itself from the vagaries and inconsisties of business. Well being of the business, depends on the wellbeing of its stakeholders and it's use of the world's natural resources. Sustainability strategy is a must for business. Solving problems after they have occurred is lot more expensive than preventing them altogether. Our effort should be on building a “bubble proof” economy.

In order to discuss the role of business against this upcoming age of turbulence, the World Council for Corporate Governance, UK and the Institute of Directors, (India), invite you to join the ‘Global Convention 2011’ combining 11th International Conference on Corporate Governance and 2nd Global Summit on Sustainability, being held in London from 12-14 October 2011. The World Council for Corporate Governance, UK and the Institute of Directors, India are committed to development of sustainable enterprises through best Corporate Governance measures and practices.

I hope to meet you in London.

Kind regards
Ola Ullsten

Message from Leader
Gr. Uff. Cllr Marco Cereste ossi
Peterborough City Council, (Environment City of UK)

As Leader of Peterborough City Council I would like to welcome you to our fine city. We are very proud to be hosting this Study Tour as part of the Global Convention 2011. As a city committed to substantial and sustainable growth and proud of its many environmental successes, the Study Tour provides an exciting opportunity to put Peterborough on the global map. It's a city in which businesses thrive and expand and where innovative approaches are being developed and applied to tackle local and global and environmental challenges.

We are an Environment City, one of only four in the UK, and have ambitions to become the UK's Environment Capital. Our Enviro-Cluster of 380 environmental businesses forms a solid foundation for our efforts and underpins our economic growth. Peterborough is bucking the national trend and is emerging from the recent recession stronger and fitter and is a city truly open for business.
