EBC Sustainability Program Series, Part Two: Managing and Monitoring Corporate Sustainability Initiatives
September 20, 2013 @ 7:30 am - 12:00 pm
Comprehensive sustainability initiatives at leading corporations include a balanced mix of economic, environmental and social targets that are relevant or "material" to the company and its partners. As a rule, this means that such initiatives cut across corporate "silos". Successful programs have a unified, cooperative approach that requires environmental professionals to work closely with human resources, marketing, customer relations and other groups at their companies or at corporations that they serve.
What do successful companies include in their sustainability programs, how do they manage such initiatives, and how do they monitor progress? For this second of three EBC programs on Sustainability, presentations will describe materiality assessments, the roles of sustainability managers or sustainability committees, and monitoring methods that integrate environmental data with other sustainability metrics such as diversity or employee training tracking.
This second sustainability program will also expose environmental professionals new to sustainability management and monitoring issues to these upcoming topics, and will allow those with long-standing experience in the field to discuss current trends with their peers.
The first EBC program in the sustainability series (July 12) presented a "lay of the land" of the major topics included in leading corporate sustainability initiatives and how these fit into corporate strategy. The third program (November 15) will discuss the key steps involved in developing a successful Sustainability Report, and the skills that environmental professionals will want to acquire to be able to participate or lead such comprehensive reporting efforts.
Continuing Education Certificates are awarded by the EBC for this program (3.5 training contact hours). Please select this option during registration if you wish to receive a certificate.
