Building Credibility with Third Party Verification
January 17 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am
How sustainability leaders are building credibility with third party verification
2019 is shaping up to be a year where companies and institutions will need to face-up to the continuing problem of low public trust. Edelman’s 2018 Trust Barometer has found declining public trust in business and government. In the sustainability space, credibility is becoming even more important and several global institutions are finding a receptive audience when it comes to trusted carbon disclosure standards (CDP), alignment with global targets (Science Based Targets) or other third party verification. But the expertise and organizational resources required to meet them can seem daunting. How can businesses recognize new standards of global sustainability leadership without creating a credibility gap for their own CSR programs?
That’s why Bullfrog Power, the company that pioneered the green energy audit in Canada, is hosting a panel discussion with industry leaders on the business case for verifiable sustainability targeting regimes and an exploration for the barriers to adoption. Learn from peers who have worked through the challenging process of setting credible targets and aligning CSR policies with the global scientific consensus. Join the discussion and meet like-minded professionals for a frank exploration of the next frontier in sustainability.
Our panel will be announced shortly.
This event is complimentary and a light breakfast will be served. Colleagues welcome!
