The New Metrics of Sustainable Business
September 27-28, 2012
The Wharton School
As the definition of value continues to evolve, the demand for business to demonstrate its ability to create value of various forms for all stakeholders - rather than simply profit for shareholders - is increasing, and the question of how this value is identified, measured and communicated becomes paramount.
Beginning with a step back to ask ourselves, what is the point of business and economics anyway, this 2-day, in-depth discussion, some of sustainability's top strategists will examine leading-edge work that is expanding the way business creates, quantifies, and manages the value it delivers through the metrics it adopts.
Key topics to be explored include:
- How society is beginning to redefine value in the 21st century and what this means for business
- Breakthrough research and models for measuring the ROI of sustainability efforts
- Standardizing sustainability context
- Incentivizing and maximizing employee engagement and well-being and quantifying the value of same
- Tying environmental and social initiatives to enhanced shareholder value
- The valuation of ecosystem services
- The growing role of materiality in how companies are, or should be, measuring and reporting impact
