COA Symposium: A Sustainable and Resilient Private Sector in Latin America

Join us as we hear top executives discuss how multinationals can build more resilient business models to include environmental, social, and corporate governance perspectives.

4:00 to 5:15 pm ET

Cisco Webex



Join leaders from multilatinas and multinational corporations who will discuss the need for companies to go beyond the traditional business models to benefit all stakeholders by including environmental, social, and corporate governance perspectives.

Latin America’s private sector is facing unprecedented challenges to not only survive, but thrive in a post-pandemic environment. In this context, traditional approaches that benefit only shareholders are inefficient for companies in their efforts to keep their business afloat while also building a more inclusive, sustainable, and resilient future.

  • Julian Nebreda, President,  AES South America
  • Aaron Puna, CEO, Anglo American Chile
  • Jim Hemerling, Managing Director & Senior Partner, BCG (moderator)
  • Susan Segal, President and CEO, AS/COA

To guide the conversation, the moderator will present the framework of BCG’s latest book Beyond Great: How to Build Sustainable Business Advantage in a World Where Great Is No Longer Good Enough? Their analysis, stemming from research on more than 50 companies from around the world, shows that the companies that have built the most impressive business advantage make savvy use of nine key strategies that will be discussed in the conversation. As companies seek to redefine their performance for the new era to not only survive but thrive, these experiences provide valuable lessons.
