Science-based Goal-setting as the Holy Grail of Managing Non-Financial Performance: The Future-Fit Business Benchmark and PivotGoals

Think of a company, any company. Now ask yourself this: is the company truly sustainable, in everything it does and sells? If not, then how must the company change before it is? How would you recognize a truly sustainable company if you saw one? If you’re struggling to answer these questions, you’re not alone: it’s hard to assess real progress if the destination is unclear. And until now we’ve had no clear, credible and actionable definition of what being a truly sustainable company really means. Unfortunately the 100+ corporate sustainability ratings in existence don’t hold the answer, because they focus on today’s best practice rather than tomorrow’s required practice.

The Future-Fit Business Benchmark offers a set of goals that collectively define what every company must do if we are to safeguard the possibility that humanity can flourish forever. The open-source framework outlines 28 social and environmental goals across business areas that apply to all companies, regardless of industry or size. PivotGoals is a database of the environmental, social, and governance targets set by the Fortune Global 500 companies aiming to track said companies’ current level of ambition in goal-setting. Join this workshop to learn more and understand how the Benchmark can be applied within your organization, as well as what PivotGoals analyses say about the current state of affairs in corporate goal-setting around the full range of sustainability issues.
