A new economy is emerging that requires expanded methods for identifying, measuring and quantifying entirely new forms of business risk and value. Courageous corporate leaders have already spurred aggressive action toward identifying and valuing these costs and impacts, and brands leading the charge have demonstrated their ability to adopt new metrics and practices that lead to demonstrably better business performance. They are successfully translating previously ignored economic, environmental and social impacts into corporate financial performance indicators that have led to successful business results.
This 3-day Sustainable Brands event showcased the macro, corporate and investor landscapes to help your business succeed. Insightful business leaders will be shared detailed research on macro trends, risks and opportunities including discussions on UN sustainable development goals and applicability for the private sector. The event featured deep dive discussions and case studies led by remarkable thought leaders and analysts working to create smarter, more accurate and more inclusive business metrics that create value for all stakeholders. Professionals discovered new practical tools for valuing carbon, water and other types of natural capital, plus new intelligence on the correlation between sustainability performance and brand strength. The investor landscape shared new research on the ROI of both public and private sustainable investing, share new intelligence on green bond indices by mainstream banks and identify new players in sustainable investing across entirely new asset classes.
Leading brands and businesses are continuing to learn from remarkable thought leaders working to create a path toward smarter, more accurate and more inclusive business metrics that create value for all stakeholders and we certainly look forward to diving even deeper next year at New Metrics ’17.
