Webcast: Taking an Integrated Approach to Sustainability

August 24, 2010

According to a recent Economist report, “Companies understand the need to move sustainability reporting beyond a simple statement in their annual reports to a more detailed assessment of their operations. A fully integrated, companywide approach will be needed to realize the benefits of sustainability.”

The challenge is how to make it happen – and how to make your efforts pay off.

Join GreenBiz.com’s Marc Gunther in an upcoming webcast, “Taking an Integrated Approach to Sustainability,” to learn how you can go beyond the basics and build a strategy that drives returns and meets today’s growing demands for transparency and accountability.

In this webcast, you will learn:

  • How an integrated approach to sustainability is the most effective pathway to improve profitability and how IT solutions can help

  • How Lexmark International executes an integrated sustainability strategy across the enterprise to drive financial returns

  • How SAP uses its own tools to monitor, measure and report on the company’s sustainability performance.

We encourage attendees with Twitter accounts to tweet your thoughts, opinions, and questions before and during the event. Please use the hashtag #EcoChat.

TrueValueMetrics (TVM) is an Open Source / Open Knowledge initiative. It has been funded by family and friends plus donations from well wishers who understand the importance of accountability and getting the management metrics right. TVM is a 'big idea' that has the potential to be a game changer leveling the playing field so the wealth and power is shared on a more reasonable basis between people who work for a living and those that own the economy and the levers of power. In order to be effective, it cannot be funded in the conventional way with a for profit business plan, but absolutely must remain an open access initiative.
WE WANT TO MAINTAIN AN OPEN KNOWLEDGE MODEL
A MODEST DONATION WILL HELP MAKE THAT HAPPEN
