Sustainability pays! Global trending towards Chief Environmental Officers
and Chief Sustainability Officers alongside traditional CEO's is a direct
response to the integral role of the environment in operational efficiency. A
groundswell in Corporate Sustainability in T&T is needed. This Breakfast
Seminar will bring together stakeholders and practitioners in the public,
and private sectors and NGOs to speak on the principle and practice of
the integrated bottom line in the T&T context -- measuring real profitability
against, not just financial, but also environmental and social activities.

members that the one to see it re-

incumbent Prakash Ramadhar and con-
tenders Seepersad-Bachan and Minister
of Culture Lincoln Douglas.
The fourth candidate, Rufus Foster,

Seepersad-Bachan, during her short
delivery, said that Ramadhar failed the
party s values and code of ethics in sev-
eral key matters including his presence
on the UNC platform during the
Chaguanas West by-election and his
more recent treatment of the contro-
versial alleged recording of COP member
Anil Roberts handling what is thought
to be marijuana.
"We have a code of ethics and code
of conduct in public life and here again
we have a type of behaviour taking place
and the COP is sitting by the side," she
Seepersad-Bachan said the party s
executive took a decision and Ramadhar
was supposed to take that directive to
the Prime Minister, but was surprised
when Ramadhar changed his mind on
the matter without informing them.
She said Ramadhar should not allow
his commitment to the partnership to
overshadow his commitment to the

the coalition government, she called for
more COP independence.
She said parties could disagree and
yet remain united in governance.
"We are committed to coalition gov-
ernment and coalition politics," she said.
