OBJECTIVE: All over the world, an increasing number of companies are showing that they can
improve their results while better respecting man and the environment.
The World Forum Lille has set its goals upon going through these “best practices” and getting them

All of this in a favourable environment – Lille and its area – land of social innovation at the heart

international meetings, have been planned:
The World Forum Lille is organized by the Alliances network, along with public and private partners.
