The Iconic Island Round Table Discussion

Over the past few months we’ve been discussing our plans on how to transform the island of Sumba into a 100% sustainable energy driven community with numerous stakeholders… and the business community. We’ve been overwhelmed with the positive feedback and enthusiasm from the corporate sector and have learned about numerous ways companies are able to contribute to a common goal. Moreover, this project does not purely appeal to corporate philanthropy or corporate social responsibility, but provides for multiple routes of jointly building a positive business case.
