Location: Zoom Webinar

About

Sustainability reporting and planning has become more mainstream in recent years. The development of having investors require companies to report on sustainability sends a signal. It is now considered of importance, not only for the environment, employees, and communities, but certainly also from a risk and financial perspective. In this webinar, our expert panel will provide insight into the Corporate Sustainability Plans of their organizations, how these have been developed, and their benefits.  

Michael Hendrix will be speaking on the development and implementation of the Corporate Sustainability Plan of LSA Associates. Michael has been involved in the development and will elaborate on how to set a Corporate Sustainability Plan up from the start. Of special interest is the fact that LSA Associates is an employee-owned company and therefore the Plan is customized so that every employee has a part in meeting the company’s sustainability goals.  

Rich Walter will present the Corporate Sustainability Plan for ICF, a global advisory and digital services provider with approximately 7,000 employees.   

Preeti Verma will discuss the various sustainability reporting protocols including Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). 

Join us to learn the ins and outs of setting up a Corporate Sustainability Plan. This time not for our clients, but our environmental and engineering consultancies.
