              Inventory to Action: Moving Beyond Carbon Reporting to Renewable Energy Strategies

              A webinar with WSP

              Are your suggestions to report on sustainability activities and performance falling on deaf ears? We will help you think through the business case for reporting on environmental sustainability activities and performance, and how to show your organization the value of transparency.

              Green power is increasingly becoming a part of standard sustainability reporting and leading sustainability programs. Developing a strategy for green power procurement will help ensure that organizations define and achieve their objectives in an efficient and cost-effective way. WSP will present an overview of green power options with a focus on offsite renewables and utility green power products.

              Sustainable Spend Analysis: An efficient and effective way to gauge the sustainability impacts of your organization's supply chain

              A webinar with VitalMetrics

              Tune in to learn about supply chain sustainability and tools to help you tackle it. The supply chain often embodies the majority of an organization's environmental, social, and economic impacts, but collecting data from suppliers and measuring their sustainability impacts is resource intensive and often cost-prohibitive.

              Using robust, peer-reviewed impact data and a life cycle approach, Sustainable Spend Analysis can quickly and efficiently gauge the sustainability impacts of an organization's supply chain using spend data, a readily available resource. It enables organizations to identify and target suppliers, and also helps identify areas of potential environmental, economic, or reputational risks embedded in the supply chain. The approach has been successfully applied to state and local governments, cities and municipalities, small to medium sized enterprises, and multinational corporations.

              Join us to learn what spend analysis is, how it can be leveraged, and what tools and resources are available to conduct one for your organization.

              The Power of People! Engaging Employees to Accelerate Sustainability Impacts

              A webinar with WeSpire and Cool Choices

              Many sustainability efforts focus on technology—saving energy via lighting retrofits, for example. When organizations want to achieve breakthrough results, though, the focus has to broaden from technology to operations—to the practices of the people who are actually involved! An engaged workforce is a critical component of successful sustainability efforts, so it is vital that business leaders understand how to engage employees, from the C-suite to rank-and-file staff.

              In this webinar we’ll talk about the importance of employee engagement, share real-world case studies from two of the leading entities helping companies engage employees, and illustrate how individual engagement can facilitate broader cultural shifts, leading to increased innovation, resilience, and profits.

              China’s Emission Trading System and Corporate Compliance

              A webinar with Mr. Xin Zhang, Director of National Center for Climate Change Strategy and International Cooperation

              Since 2011, the Chinese government has established piloting Emission Trading Systems (ETS) in seven major cities and provinces in the country. In Dec, 2017, the national ETS market was launched and started covering more than 1700 enterprises in China. The national ETS market in China is expected to be the largest one worldwide and will cover more enterprises and industries in near future. How does the national ETS operate in China? What kind of impacts will be brought to corporate sustainability by the national ETS? And what are the major takeaways for corporate ETS compliance? Mr. Xin Zhang, the architect of the national ETS in China and the director of National Center for Climate Change Strategy and International Cooperation, will provide a deep dive of the national ETS to us at this webinar and share his insights with our China network. The webinar will be in Mandarin Chinese.
