Join the Sustainable Brands community as we explore the future of smarter business metrics at The New Metrics of Sustainable Business Conference, September 27-28, 2012 in Philadelphia, PA. This two-day Sustainable Brands Issues in Focus event, in partnership with The Wharton School, examines leading-edge work that expands the way business can create, quantify, manage and communicate value; measure the full impacts of business activity; and find new ways to translate shared value into enhanced financial performance.
Industry leaders, top sustainability strategists and managers from a variety of sectors will collaborate and lead interactive discussion on a wide range of issues. Highlights include representatives from Deloitte, Natural Logic, Bloomberg and HDR discussing measuring the ROI of sustainability initiatives; the Nature Conservancy, Disney, Dow Chemical and Weyerhaeuser on valuing ecosystem services; HIP Investor, Harvard, Campbell Soup, Starbucks and more on the effect of impact investing on business priorities; and Jones Lang LaSalle, Method and Stonyfield Farm on extending value and measuring impact through the supply chain. Other topics include adding environmental and human capital to the balance sheet; putting sustainability goals in context; incentivizing and maximizing employee engagement and well-being; tying environmental and social initiatives to enhanced shareholder value; the growing role of materiality in how companies are, or should be, measuring and reporting impact; and more.
