The Sustainability Reporting Landscape
Join us as we take a closer look at sustainability reporting, analysis and certification programs and frameworks. In this session, you will hear from three companies who actively use reporting, certification, and analysis to manage and communicate about sustainable practice in their company and with other companies.
The range of survey and reporting tools for sustainability is enormous. We will explore the strategic directions that organizations have taken to capture and communicate sustainable practice, meet customer and analyst expectations, and manage performance for business-critical sustainable practices.
Our panelists will also reflect on the use of information from sustainability information/certification frameworks to present their credentials credibly and clearly to consumers, investors, regulators, customers, suppliers and other interested persons.
Session Moderator: Mark McDermid – Mark has more 30 years of experience working with manufacturers, both as an employee and as a Director in the Wisconsin Bureau of the Department of Natural Resources promoting sustainability in the state’s manufacturing sector.
