From April 2016, the world-leading legislation, The Wellbeing of Future Generations Act will materially affect governance and the delivery of public sectors in Wales. This has major implications for anyone doing business in Wales or with Wales. The Sustain Wales Summit will identify what innovative approaches are required in order for Wales to achieve the national Wellbeing Goals established by The Act. The Summit will bring together experts in the field, from international, sector-leading organisations operating in Wales to address 3 cutting edge themes:

Low-carbon technology

Resource efficiency and the closed loop

New business models
