This webinar will describe the imperative of setting long-term sustainability strategies to steward the organization and society to a sustainable future. It will profile recent research into the approaches leading companies are taking to develop “sustainability vision stories,” that address the sustainability mega-forces that will affect companies and their operating environments, how the company can both adapt to and influence the sustainability forces in a positive way and adopt a long-term sustainability quest that will improve outcomes for the organization, its stakeholders and broader society. The webinar will also provide a case study of a leading company with exemplary practices in setting and pursuing a long-term sustainability vision, including how it has transitioned through various phases of sustainability performance.
