Design your vision for tomorrow at Boston College’s 2013 International Corporate Citizenship Conference
Each year the Center’s International Corporate Citizenship Conference draws hundreds of professionals from around the world. Leading policy makers from the largest domestic and international corporations attend - executives responsible for corporate citizenship, corporate social responsibility, sustainability, public relations, communications, work/life issues, and a wide range of community and business.
This year’s conference theme - Designing Opportunity - emphasizes corporate citizenship's potential for fueling innovation and growth. Boston College research and the practice of leading companies show that linking citizenship activities to core business strategy can lead to new products, expanded markets, a more engaged workforce, improved relationships in the community, and, ultimately, a stronger financial performance of the firm. Learn new practices that add value to programs and contribute to a collaborative and creative process.
CSRHub’s COO, Cynthia Figge will be part of a breakout session on the “Value of Reporting.”
ESG matters have become more material to companies and their business, and more and more companies are reporting ESG performance. Almost all of the Global 250 issue non-financial reports and reporter numbers have been growing at an almost exponential rate recently. What are the key benefits to reporting and what are the costs that have kept some companies from disclosing nonfinancial information? We will cover the major benefits and drawbacks to reporting and also review the most commonly used framework globally – the GRI Framework.
