Every company needs to track, manage, and reduce its environmental and social footprint – in its own operations and in its supply chain. This Council is targeted at sustainability directors who grapple with these issues every day. Member companies span a wide range of industry sectors: aerospace, automotive, chemicals, electronics, food, manufacturing, oil and gas, pharmaceutical, power, and more. Learn how you can contribute to your company's bottom line while implementing its sustainability strategy.
Council members explore how companies and industry leaders:
- Establish the business value of sustainability and its impact on the bottom line
- Develop and integrate goals and metrics into business objectives to reduce footprint and costs
- Strengthen leadership involvement, risk management, incentives, disclosure, and reporting practices
- Integrate sustainability principles into operations and supply chains
- Establish robust processes for improving stakeholder engagement measurably
- Facilitate benchmarking of leading sustainability practices
We share ideas and best practices for integrating sustainability into business strategies and tactics.
