The Rio+20 Sustainable Development Summit in June 2012 will highlight key issues of moving towards resource efficient, low carbon economies and delivering inclusive ‘green growth’. What business opportunities will emerge from those discussions? What are leading policy makers, business people and entrepreneurs doing to move forward eco-innovation related to new products, technologies, services and business models?  What lessons can Taiwan learn?

Leading experts from the UK will team up with Business Council for Sustainable Development –Taiwan (BCSD Taiwan) to run three workshops in August 2012 in Taipei. The programme will provide a unique opportunity for Taiwan’s leaders to access first-hand information and training from top European experts.
