A strong ESG/Sustainability/CSR program is crucial for today’s businesses and key to enhancing business value, attracting top talent, managing risk, and safeguarding reputation. But with our small, understaffed teams, changing regulations, endless reporting frameworks, political backlash, and an array of stakeholder needs and expectations to account for, doing sustainability work is more challenging than ever. How do you create a strategy that is both impactful and feasible? How do you tell a story that is unique and authentic? How can you leverage employee resource groups to engage your team? How can you gauge the impact of your efforts, especially with limited resources?
We’re offering this event completely free to the Dallas sustainability community. Reservations are filling quickly, so be sure to RSVP today.
