Make-a-bigger-impactIf you’re wondering how a successful sustainability report can better resonate with investors then please check out the next TSSS event on Feb 5.  at 5pm EST Live & Livestream. Bay/Wall Street and Sustainability: Does your CSR Report Resonate with Investors?)

An amazing summary of The TOP TEN Sustainability Reports of 2014

The Guardian reports that GBP300m was wiped off Tesco’s market value in the days following the news last week that frozen beefburgers, advertised as 100 percent beef, contained 29 percent horse DNA. Some also contained pig DNA.

This meat-swap revelation has brought with it a heavy financial penalty and a reputational nightmare for Tesco and other supermarkets. The factory from which Tesco apparently unwittingly sourced the horseburgers has now been shut down and Tesco is left with unstocked freezers, an extremely embarrassing conversation in the Board room and a big dent in the company’s value.
