#3BLchat - 'CSR / Sustainability Reporting: A Marathon Not a Sprint'
(3BL Media Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) SOURCE: 3BL Media, LLC
DESCRIPTION:CSR and Sustainability Reports have come a long way, mostly. With increasing numbers of private sector organisations than ever before now formally producing non-financial reports, and amidst an energetic evolution of reporting frameworks, 3BL Media wanted to facilitate the exploration of how the best companies engaged with stakeholders.
We invited Henk Campher, SVP Business + Social Purpose, and MD Sustainability at Edelman and Guy Morgan, Director of Advisory Services at BSR to share their expert knowledge and fuel a 60 minute #3BLchat powered debate.
In the relatively short time period the conversation covered many of the major aspects of reporting communications and engagement, and received direct insight and best practice examples from professionals at global giants such as Cisco, Dell, SAP, Sodexo, AMD and Marks & Spencer.
As expected there were strong recurring themes around balancing data provision with storytelling, how to sustain communication all year round, understanding varying stakeholders preferred communication channels and how to inject disruption and innovation into the process.
Here’s a brief sample of the conversation…
For a full list of the questions, Henk’s and Guy’s answers, plus highlights from the community check out our Storify version here.
