Internationale Führungskräfte aus Wirtschaft und Zivilgesellschaft werden für den zweitägigen Gipfel zum Thema nachhaltige Wirtschaft, der am 7. und am 8. Mai 2013 zum 12. Mal stattfindet, in London zusammenkommen.

Über 500 hochrangige Teilnehmer und mehr als 50 Experten aus der ganzen Welt werden darüber diskutieren, wie die Wirtschaft ihrer wichtigen sozialen Verantwortung gerecht werden kann und Umweltbelastungen reduziert werden können.

Zu den Marken, die repräsentiert werden, gehören M&S, Microsoft, Unilever, BASF, Dow, Dupont, Rio Tinto, ASDA, HP, die National Bank of Abu Dhabi, Patagonia und Hyundai. Auch Nichtregierungsorganisationen und die Wissenschaft bringen Gedanken und Einsichten mit Referenten von Oxfam, der Ethical Trading Initiative, EABIS, der Cranfield School of Management, der Europäischen Kommission sowie dem InstituteofHuman Rightsand Business mit ein.

Die Themen der Keynotes auf dem Gipfel drehen sich um Ressourcenknappheit, um eine engere Zusammenarbeit nach Rio+20 sowie um Maßnahmen, das Vertrauen der Öffentlichkeit in Unternehmen wieder zu stärken.

Mike Barry, Leiter des Bereichs nachhaltige Wirtschaft bei Marks & Spencer, schrieb in der Jahresabschlussumfrage der Ethical Corporation: "Extremes Wetter ist von einer Theorie zu einer neuen Wirklichkeit geworden. Verbraucher der Mittelschicht werden sich in den nächsten 20 Jahren auf drei Milliarden Euro verdreifachen, was zusätzliche Belastungen im Bereich Ressourcen mit sich bringen wird. Die ‚gemütliche' Nachhaltigkeitsdebatte von vor ein paar Jahren wird zunehmend durch harte Entscheidungen ersetzt."

Der Gipfel wird 20 Breakout-Sessions beinhalten, deren Schwerpunkte auf den schwierigsten Themen der unternehmerischen Gesellschaftsverantwortung liegen, beispielsweise Nachhaltigkeit der Lieferkette, Umsetzung der Ruggie-Prinzipien für Menschenrechte, öffentliche/private Partnerschaften und Mitarbeiter, die speziell für das Thema unternehmerische Gesellschaftsverantwortung geschult werden.

Auf das übliche Konferenzformat soll verzichtet werden. "Es gibt eindeutig bessere Lernmethoden, als das übliche Konferenzformat ‚sitzen und zuhören und PowerPoint-Präsentationen ansehen'. Auf dem Responsible Business Summit 2013 werden wir anhand von Szenarien Kommentare und Diskussion mit unseren Referenten in Gang setzen. Die Teilnehmer werden in kleine Gruppen aufgeteilt und nutzen bis zu einem Dutzend bewährter und neuer innovativer Techniken. Dies soll unser bisher bestes Lern- und Networking-Event werden", sagte Toby Webb, Gründer der Ethical Corporation.

Priorität haben Beiträge aus Unternehmen und Zivilgesellschaft, während Lösungsanbieter und Hersteller begrenzten Zutritt haben werden.

As an area of investment, how might a retail company move towards an innovation methodolo...
Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...

For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market. But the lack of a standard development platform threatens to slow growth and make application development more time consuming and costly, much like we’ve seen in the mobile space. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner, Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., discussed the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conducted a live demonstration of how quickly application development can happen when the need to comply wit...
