Best Practices in CSR Standards, Reporting, and Performance

Global companies are expected to meet global standards of corporate accountability, responsibility, and sustainability. Yet those standards are complex and contradictory, and despite best efforts to create order amidst this chaos, they continue to proliferate.

Best Practices in CSR Standards, Reporting, and Performance presents case studies and methods used by Future 500 companies to avoid “survey fatigue,” overcome “headline headache,” and produce world class reports on corporate accountability, responsibility, and sustainability.

The presentation features real-world examples of how companies:

Drive excellence in corporate ethics, accountability, sustainability, and responsibility.

Eliminate “survey fatigue” and manage multiple standards.

Earn top ratings by SRI and CSR agencies

Develop world-class measurement and reporting systems, as rated by globally respected agencies

Create repositories to store, access, and report their SRI and CSR performance.

We relate the fundamentals using examples from leadership companies like Coca-Cola, Coors, Dow, Dupont, ERM, General Motors, Matsushita, Mitsubishi Electric, WSP, and Weyerhaeuser, and others.
