WEBINAR RECORDING: The Future-Fit Business Benchmark

How would we recognize a sustainable future-fit company if we saw one?  When companies work on improving their environmental and social performance, how much is enough?  These question is more relevant to stakeholders today than it was five years ago.

 

Recorded live on Thursday, January 21, 2016 at 11:00 am PT / 2:00 pm ET

Accountability for supply chain conditions, resource scarcities, ecosystem destruction, climate destabilization, and new levels of transparency forced by social media are introducing new risks and opportunities into the game of business.  Would a truly sustainable enterprise be better positioned to thrive on a more climate-disrupted, resource-constrained, water-constrained, and socially-unstable planet?  Yes.

Bob highlights how a new, free, open-source benchmark for a company’s required environmental and social performance can be a breakthrough resource for companies, investors, consultants, and standards organizations.  He will outline the science-based environmental and social goals in the Future-Fit Business Benchmark; why it is needed now; how it relates to other sustainability reporting and ranking frameworks like GRI and the UN SDGs; the target audiences for its use; the business benefits of achieving its goals; and the Future-Fit Foundation’s strategy for deploying the benchmark in the business community so that companies can clearly see the goal line for their journey toward greater bottom-line profitability and resilience―that is, when they will be fit for the future.
