Event Navigation


CDRC in partnership with Innovation Forum will be hosting a webinar on how can big data help sustainable business performance. 

Over the last few years there has been much talk about how so-called “big data” is the future and if you are not exploiting it your company is losing its competitive advantage.

Data and information is the day-to-day business of sustainability professionals and they are well qualified to take advantage of big data to better understand the environmental aspects or risks of their companies, product or service.

So what is there in the latest wave of enthusiasm on big data to help organisations achieve sustainability strategies and competitive advantage?


Professor William Young will discuss the opportunities that big data offers sustainability professionals.  During the one hour webinar the panel will discuss how Big Data is currently utilised to help deliver successful sustainability initiatives within Asda, Callcredit and Samsung.

The panel also participate in a live Q&A session with the audience.

  • Wouter van Tol, Director of Sustainability and Citizenship, Samsung
