Join us for this webcast as Dr. Uwe Schulte, Council Director for the Sustainability Council, interviews Thomas Singer, Researcher, Corporate Leadership, on the latest edition of The Sustainability Practices report.
The report analyzes a total of 76 environmental, social, and reporting practices including: atmospheric emissions, water consumption, biodiversity policies, labor standards, human rights practices, and charitable and political contributions. For benchmarking purposes, data for S&P Global 1200 companies are compared with the S&P 500 and the Russell 1000, and are further analyzed across 10 business sectors, four revenue groups, and four regions, encompassing North America, Latin America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific.
The report is organized in three parts.
- Part I: Disclosure Practices
- Part II: Environmental Practices
- Part III: Social Practices
With the new edition of the report, The Conference Board also introduces a complementary web-based tool, the Sustainability Practices Dashboard. The dashboard presents data from the report in an interactive online format, allowing users to easily select, view, and export the most relevant benchmarking data.
