What’s state of the art in sustainability reporting?

Getting-the-message-outRewarding the best of the best at the CRRA Awards gives an inkling on sustainability reporting in 2014.

For the last three years my firm (Terrafiniti) has had the distinct pleasure of supporting CorporateRegister.com’s annual CR Reporting Awards (CRRA 15), the unique global, non-financial reporting accolades.

Our role has been to support shortlisting; reading and scoring all awards entries, which gives a fantastic snapshot of current practice in reporting across the world. This year (2014, for the 2015 Awards), the CRRA had a record number of entries, with around 100 organisations submitting reports.

Sustainability Top 30 Under 30 Nomination

According to the United Nations, nearly a third of the world’s population falls into the “youth” category.

Bay/Wall Street and Sustainability: Does your CSR Report Resonate with Investors?

BREAKING NEWS: Sustainable Business Practices Dramatically Boost Stock Valuations

Did you read this title and think, “it’s about time?”  Unfortunately, the title is more future prediction than current fact. Bay/Wall Street often fails to appreciate the proven bottom line benefits of sustainable business practices.  But on February 5th TSSS is excited to launch its 2015 season with a distinguished panel of experts that will discuss how corporations can have their sustainable development (SD) work more accurately reflected in their stock valuation.

Ask yourself:

Does your company’s CSR Report resonate with the investment community? Does it tell analysts and money managers the information that they need to know? Is the information actionable for immediate investment decisions? At the end of the day, are your sustainability efforts reflected in your company’s stock price?  If the answer is NO and the capital markets are not rewarding your sustainability efforts then this event is for you.

ENGAGE DIRECTLY WITH THE PANELISTS VIA OUR LIVESTREAM AND TWITTERCHAT #tssschat

Helping Empower Boards to Unlock the Value of Corporate Sustainability

boardroom table

Board members can play a pivotal role in helping companies unlock the value of corporate sustainability.

Open a newspaper or tune into a radio show, and it’s a good bet you’ll run into a story about growing mistrust of companies and their leaders.

The sense that some of our current incentive systems seem to be driving risky and in some cases immoral behavior has catalyzed a public call for transparency, accountability, better governance and stewardship of our common resources. One major change people seek is commitment to sustainable business principles and subsequent global action.
