Leverage Sustainability Reports to Drive Performance

[fa icon="calendar'] Mar 21, 2013 9:00:14 AM / by CSRHub Blogging

Sustainable Seattle



Sustainable Seattle Good Business Workshop.

Imagine if you knew more about corporate social responsibility. What are CSR Raters evaluating? What are new CSR trends? This workshop will help you understand how to improve your Sustainability Report. You may want to work on your environmental performance, increasing brand value, connecting with customers, engaging employees, or accelerating a culture of continuous improvement. These topics will be discussed and analyzed during the workshop.

The workshop is hosted by Sustainable Seattle and led by Seattle's-own Russell Barton and Cynthia Figge. They combine their experience as "internal" strategic advisors to CSR reporting for you. They've consulted with many of North America's most well-known companies and also bring their perspective of being "external" raters.
