We’re especially looking forward to hearing from 3BL Media's Dave Armon when he takes the stage with Tapestry’s Jackie Albano for the following timely discussion:
The Future of Sustainability in the Corporate Narrative
Increasingly, consumers in America expect companies to be taking actions on critical topics of sustainability with research quantifying 60% to 70% identifying that as a priority. Sustainability, in the minds of the consumer, means environmental issues ranging from emissions and pollution to energy use and sourcing. It also involves social issues such as labor conditions, equitable pay, and DEI initiatives. The "corporate narrative” needs to engage other stakeholders beyond just their customers, especially when expectations diverge. Increasing pressure from investor activists is surfacing on environmental investments, and boards are also now playing defense against criticism of greenwashing.
As these tensions continue to grow, how do communications leaders shape the corporate narrative to not only stay future-focused but also positively address the expectations of multiple stakeholders?
