Rémi Parmentier, Director of Varda Group and Founding Member of Greenpeace International will be at IE Business School on Tuesday, December 11th, as part of the 7th Annual Global Affairs Forum.
What are the respective roles of the private sector, governments and NGOs to meet the challenges of Sustainability? Private-Public Partnerships are booming, but can they truly be part of the solution? How can they work for the environment and society? What should managers and leaders look out for? These and other issues will be discussed with Remi. If you want to be part of the conversation, please contact us here.

About GAF:
IE’s Seventh Annual Global Affairs Forum (GAF) provides students with an overview of some of the global issues that affect business decision-making. The goal is to explore the ways in which business leaders can help address these problems, and effectively become part of the solution. In this ongoing seminar, key business, political, academic and civil society leaders engage with the International MBA students and together analyse current challenges, threats and opportunities such as global warming, the rise of China, social entrepreneurship and the future of the Internet, among others.
