Innovation Forum: How business can measure the impact of corporate sustainability

From: 02.10.2018 To: 03.10.2018 Share

Innovation Forum has partnered with the University of Michigan's Erb Institute to bring you our upcoming forum ‘How business can measure the impact – and ROI – of corporate sustainability (2-3 October, Detroit).
This conference will highlight the latest methods being used by businesses to define and measure their sustainability impact, and to discuss which tools best inform decision-making. We will focus on understanding impact in order to drive strategy, justify budgets and effectively communicate progress.
Some highlights of the two-day agenda include:
  • The business case in 2018: How impact can drive genuine engagement in board rooms
  • Understanding and measuring impact: What are the practicalities and how do you determine the value of sustainability?
  • Defining materiality: Beyond reporting, how materiality assessments can be used to inform and direct company strategy
  • ROI in action: In-depth company case studies on the specific tools and processes for determining the ROI of sustainability initiatives
  • The SDGs and business impact: Are the SDGs more than just a reporting framework?
  • Data systems that deliver: How to access the right data from your suppliers, and then what to do with it
  • Investor perspective: What impact indicators are investors really looking for?
  • External stakeholders: How do NGOs and other stakeholders judge companies and which methodologies do they use?
The full agenda can be seen here.
