A 2-day workshop with two overriding objectives:
1) to introduce and explain a compelling new approach to corporate sustainability management known as context-based sustainability(CBS), and
2) to provide a detailed methodology for how to operationalize CBS in organizational settings.
Along the way, we describe and critique other contemporary methods for managing sustainability, while placing a heavy emphasis on alternative approaches for measuring and reporting sustainability performance.
Tools, methods and metrics for assessing sustainability performance are covered in detail. Each attendee also receives a complimentary copy of 'Corporate Sustainability Management - The Art and Science of Managing Non-Financial Performance', by McElroy and Van Engelen (Earthscan, 2012).
