Hannes Snellman’s Discussion Event at SuomiAreena

23 June 2021

Building a sustainable business is critical for all industries. Sustainability is playing an increasingly important role in the success of all companies. It attracts stakeholders and the public, but the effectiveness of the measures is also subject to criticism. Is this a mandatory evil, or do companies really want to act in accordance with the principles of responsibility? Should global minimum standards be set for corporate responsibility by means of regulation? Can operating profit and responsibility go hand in hand in business?

Hannes Snellman organises a discussion event on these topics at SuomiAreena on 16 July 2021 at 10.00-10.45 am at Allas Sea Pool in Helsinki. You can watch Hannes Snellman’s event through MTV streaming service or live at the venue. The event will also be recorded, and you can access it in the MTV service and on our website.

The participants in the discussion are Timo Ahopelto, Founder of Lifeline Ventures, Sonja Finér, Executive Director of Finnwatch ry, Laura Tarkka, Managing Director of Gigantti Oy, and Riikka Rannikko, Managing Partner of Hannes Snellman in Helsinki. The discussion will be moderated by Journalist Jussi-Pekka Rantanen.

The whole SuomiAreena programme is available here.

SuomiAreena is the largest social discussion event in Finland during the summer. SuomiAreena will be held for the 15th time and this year for the first time as a hybrid implementation in Helsinki and Pori on 12-16 July 2021.
