Meeting Overview

Measurement is the cornerstone of any successful sustainability program. Metrics allow brands to connect sustainability with profitability while showing stakeholders where the business stands and building a vision for where the company is headed.

The SB Corporate Member community is on the leading edge of new and evolving approaches to metrics that gauge progress toward a flourishing and regenerative future. At this meeting, we will explore how members of our cohort are expanding the way that value creation is measured while attracting and retaining sustainably-minded investors, building new frontiers in science-based targets and accelerating transparency in goal-setting and reporting for racial equity.

Corporate Members will be the first to examine emerging trends and insights from the SB Brand Transformation Roadmap℠ assessment tool. Detailed data on the collective progress brands are making within key organizational dimensions—Purpose, Brand Influence, Operations & Supply Chain, Products & Services, and Governanceis painting a picture of the corporate sustainability landscape and highlighting areas where brands may need support. Join your fellow members to find that support in a two-day forum where we will learn from one another and challenge each other to improve.

The Chief Financial Officer is key to any conversation around value creation for the business. Members are encouraged to bring their CFO and members of their finance team to this meeting, to involve other branches of the business in the vision for creating the next sustainable economy.
