The Evolution of Sustainability Standards
It is not hard for a sustainability professional to get lost in a quickly expanding sea of proposals for sustainability standards, be they for purposes of reporting, certification, consumer outreach, or comparison across companies and industries. As the closing panel at New Metrics '12, they will discuss where sustainability standards may be heading and why, and tackle the question, "How should a business determine what relevant standards initiatives they should support and/or apply for?"
