As global stakeholders, we are witnessing an exciting phenomenon occurring, that is the realization and prioritization of Sustainability as a key business driver to create value. As the concept of Corporate Sustainability evolves, and we better understand its role in business, we must be able to answer the following question. How do we support a rigorous process to assure and verify accurate measurements and reporting?
In a new era of Corporate Sustainability, stakeholders are holding corporations to a new standard of accountability. The Federal Trade Commission is in the process of enforcing laws to protect consumers from confusing environmental claims, with its release of Green Marketing Guidelines. Financial stakeholders are demanding corporate sustainability reporting to be even more relevant and targeted, to include only issues and performance data material to the key stakeholders of the corporation.
Join the Centre for Sustainability and Excellence (CSE) to discuss the next step in Corporate Sustainability with a focus on Green Marketing, Materiality, and the new FTC Guidelines.
Contributors will include Susan McPherson (Fenton Communications), Nikos Avlonas (CSE), Joe Aamidor (Enablon Solutions), Aman Singh (Vault.com), Joe Sibilia (CSRwire) and Charlie Green (Trust Across America).
This roundtable is free and provided by CSE as part of the Certified Sustainability (CSR) Practitioner Workshop to be held in New York City, NY at the Beacon Hotel, December 2-3 2010. For more information on our Workshops visit www.cse-northamerica.org.
