The Brennan School of Business will host on Tuesday, October 9, Sir Mark Moody-Stuart, former chairman of Royal Dutch Shell and a current chairman of the Foundation for The United Nations Global Compact, for its 2012 Ethics and Leadership Lecture. He has been recognized as one of the world’s leading advocates for corporate social responsibility, especially sustainable initiatives, throughout his long career in the mining and energy industries.
The lecture will be held on at 5:30 p.m. at the University Club of Chicago, 76 East Monroe Street, Chicago.
The Global Compact is a United Nations strategic policy initiative for businesses that are committed to aligning their operations and strategies with universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption.
Sir Moody-Stuart currently serves as vice chair of the Compact as well as chairman of its foundation.
A consistent presence in the global media as an advocate for both regulation and market-driven initiatives to curb climate change, he co-chaired the G-8 Task Force on Renewable Energy and chaired Business Action for Sustainable Development, a joint initiative of the International Chamber of Commerce and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development. He was made Knight Commander of the Order of St. Michael and St George in June 2000.
The lecture will address current issues in global sustainable development and corporate social responsibility, drawing on Sir Moody-Stuart’s more than four decades of experience.
