The New Metrics of Sustainable Business: Top 10 Concepts & Case Studies, August 2013 – August 2014

All opportunities for creating sustainable value can benefit from new, more complete ways of quantifying businesses' interactions with the complexities of the world, or simply New Metrics (#NewMetrics). It's an expanded set of tools for assessing environmental and social impacts, for creating new value, as well as for factoring in previously ignored costs and risks. The Sustainable Brands community continues to aggregate, digest and share leading-edge approaches to applying #NewMetrics, in order to make tangible progress on reimagining business models, stakeholder engagement and ROI projections for sustainability. The present collection is based on some of the cream-of-the-crop thought leadership our platform hosted between August 2013 and August 2014, and we can barely wait for even more advanced examples at New Metrics '14, taking place on September 24-26th, 2014 in Boston, MA.
