CSRHub’s Cynthia Figge will be leading a ‘brown bag’ webinar for EarthShift called Using Benchmarking to Evaluate Suppliers, on November 20th from 1 - 2:00pm ET.

EarthShift is offering a series of weekly 'brown bag' webinars. EarthShiftThese are free webinars covering a wide range of topics and delivered by leaders in their respective fields.

EarthShift’s founder, Lise Laurin, attended a presentation by Cynthia Figge at a conference earlier this year and wished immediately that all of her colleagues, clients and friends could have been there to attend.  This thought was the catalyst for the creation of the “Brown Bag’ webinar series. Mrs. Laurin said of the presentation “Metrics of sustainability is such a hot topic right now and CSRHub has interesting way of looking at it.”

CSRHub provides access to corporate social responsibility and sustainability ratings and information on 8,400+ companies from 135 industries in 104 countries. Managers, researchers and activists use CSRHub to benchmark company performance, learn how stakeholders evaluate company CSR practices and seek ways to change the world.

In this webinar you will learn how to use CSRHub to benchmark your supply chain with Cynthia Figge, COO and Cofounder, CSRHub.

Source 44 Webinar on Conflict Minerals

[fa icon="calendar'] Jun 18, 2012 5:00:00 AM / by CSRHub Blogging

Are you at risk?  Do you know what is lurking in your supply chain?

With the upcoming SEC rules requiring disclosure on conflict minerals, you need to find out what is in your supply chain and how to comply with the Dodd-Frank Act. Your brands and reputation are at risk if you are using conflict minerals from the Congo, an area linked to slavery, child labor and corruption.

As Source 44 is a part of the CSRHub network, we want to offer you and your suppliers, who may be affected by the Dodd-Frank Act, an easy way to get educated on the issue. Source 44 invites you to attend a free webinar, moderated by Eve Troeh, sustainability reporter for Marketplace, that will:

  • Educate you on the situation in the Congo (Patricia Jurewicz, Responsible Sourcing Network, project of As You Sow),
  • Update you on the imminent Dodd-Frank Section 1502 SEC rule (Eve Troeh, Sustainability Reporter for Marketplace),
  • Highlight the challenges of securing your supply chain  (Wally Sanabria, SanDisk), and
  • Present solutions for the traceability challenge (Source 44).

Please join to hear from experts about the regulatory, marketing and operational aspects of conflict minerals.
