The Future of Ethical Trade: From Crisis to Solutions
May 07, 8:30 AM
Location: DogA

Make sure you participate at the year's most important multi-stakeholder arena for ethical trade

Ethical Trade Norway invites you to our 2020 conference - The Future of Ethical Trade: From Crisis to Solutions


The aim of our conference is to accelerate solutions for sustainable trade that benefits people, society, and planet. 

How can we achieve sustainable consumption and production that benefits people, society and planet? 

Our house is on fire – that we know. Climate change, corruption, resource scarcity, and systemic violations of labour- and human rights are common challenges in global supply chains. 


Business as usual is not an option – that we also know. We need a transition which is not just green, but green and just. This will require solutions at both the individual and structural level. Among these solutions – some already realised, while others waiting to emerge – there are enormous opportunities to secure sustainable development through innovative business models.

Investors and consumers are waiting in line to support businesses that are part of the solution rather than the problem. According to The Business and Sustainable Development Commission, innovative solutions to meet our global goals can create business opportunities estimated at US 12 trillion

At The Future of Ethical Trade: From Crisis to Solutions, you will hear from national and international actors with innovative solutions and business models that deliver on sustainability. You will acquire knowledge and tools for developing a solution-oriented culture within your organisation, and you will have the opportunity to engage in solution labs for collaborate problem-solving. 





The conference will be bilangual with a mix of English and Norwegian.



Solution Square

At the solution square you will get the opportunity to engage with key stakeholders that can support your work with ethical trade and sustainability. The list of stakeholder organisations will be updated as organisations are confirmed.
