The New Metrics in Sustainable Business event will take place on September 24 and 25, 2013 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Explore the future of sustainable business metrics at the Sustainable Brands event. Learn from over 60 current change agents. More than 30 plenaries and breakout discussions including up to the minute trends, drivers and examples of the most successful ways businesses are creating and capturing entirely new forms of value, or quantifying previously-ignored existing economic, social and environmental impacts.
As the definition of value continues to evolve, the demand for business to demonstrate its ability to create value of various forms for all stakeholders – and not just profit for shareholders – is increasing, and the question of how this value is identified, measured and communicated becomes paramount. This 2-day, in-depth discussion with some of sustainability’s top minds will examine leading-edge work that is expanding the way business creates, quantifies, and manages the value it delivers through the metrics it adopts.
The conference will explore the latest advances in capturing traditionally ignored social and environmental risks throughout the value chain, opportunities in creating and measuring shared value with all stakeholders in mind, the very tangible value of human capital and employee engagement, as well as the increasingly sophisticated science of assessing natural capital. We will check in for the latest on competing sustainability performance and reporting standards, and launch a search for new metrics on trust, reputation and 21st century brand value.
The conference will also examine new forms of value, or newly-quantified existing economic, social and environmental impacts, on three fundamental levels:
•Product & Service Value: New forms of value delivered through innovation for sustainability on the product or service level, as well as updates in environmental and social impact assessment methodologies. Key topics include life cycle assessment, certification, labeling, supply chain tracking, and consumer-facing communication of complex data.
•Organizational Value: New metrics reflecting company-level performance assessment and valuation, featuring the latest in sustainability reporting, ratings and rankings allowing comparisons across organizations, measures of employee contribution, and studies of ‘green’ brand value.
•Societal Value: A look at how business creates shared value for communities, cities and entire countries throughout its supply chain, with an eye toward new methods for exchanging economic value and robust measures of happiness.
