Sustainability is the idea that systems - including natural and human ones, need to be regenerative and balanced in order to last. MPMA believes that this would mean all kinds of systems: economic, environmental, societal and personal.


The MPMA Sustainability Conference 2013, themed, “Impact of Open Markets on Sustainability” provides the setting for how, why, and in what ways sustainability initiatives are crucial in the open market.


The Conference will not only impart relevant information about sustainability from the government's perspective, but also industry. This will provide a platform for public-private dialogue and co-operation.


Attached is the Conference Programme.
