Ipsos is delighted to be a sponsor of the Innovation Forum on Corporate Sustainability. Through a series of company case studies, the conference will provide business delegates with the practical guidance to accurately define and understand the impact of current sustainability programs. The emphasis will remain on understanding impact in order to drive strategy, justify budgets and effectively communicate progress.
In Meghann’s presentation with Christine McGrath, chief sustainability, well-being, public and government affairs officer at Mondelēz International, they will discuss their work together on understanding the impact of Mondelēz International’s flagship sustainability program, Cocoa Life. Attendees will learn:
- What we mean by impact
- Why it’s important to measure impact
- How companies can differentiate between inputs, outputs and impacts
- What are the best practices in impact measurement
Meghann Jones will also be moderating the Patagonia Panel discussion in which Logan Duran will touch on the Sustainable Apparel Coalition Higg Index. Discover how Patagonia uses the brand and retail modules, as well as the facility environmental modules and material sustainability index, to measure the impacts of their brand supply chain.
She is also participating in a panel discussion about measurement frameworks that are being used to assess impacts. Established, overarching frameworks can really aid a company when faced with the task of measuring the impact of their sustainability programs. Protocols such as the Natural Capital Coalition adopt a systems approach, involving everyone and combining individual approaches. A shared value is created out of initiatives such as this one. Join us to learn more.
