How To Measure, Prioritize And Reduce Social And Environmental Impacts In The Most Effective Manner

As climate change concerns increase, relevant stakeholders are pushing companies more than ever before to take responsibility to account for and reduce the impacts of their products. This is not just within a company’s operations, but across the entire life cycle. How to account for these impacts accurately and how transparency can be improved to allow for comparable benchmarking are the key issues that need to be addressed.

As well as this, companies must also look at how different initiatives affect their bottom line. When resources are limited, but there is potential for strong economic growth where should you focus your efforts now and where should you focus your efforts in the future? Businesses must assess where their greatest impacts are and how they can prioritize those efforts to most effectively reduce their social and environmental impacts. Leading companies, NGO’s and policy makers will answer all of these questions in the LCA Sustainable Supply Chain USA 2010.

Understand How To Prioritize And Focus Your Efforts

Now the seventh event in our International Sustainability Series, the LCA Sustainable Supply Chain USA 2010 has evolved to meet the demands of today’s CSR and Environmental Affairs Strategists. Based on feedback from the previous six events and over 50 in depth research calls of multi national companies involved in the consumer goods industry, this event aims to present a truly unique approach to addressing companies CSR and sustainability initiatives.

This event will give companies strategies from the pioneers in the field, which they can take away to measure, prioritize and reduce their social and environmental impacts in the most effective manner. At the same time it will provide insights on creating more transparency in reporting and how companies can capitalize on trends in the future.

This two day summit offers a diverse, yet focused perspective for companies involved in the consumer goods industry:

  • Plenary sessions offering fresh perspectives to all companies
  • Break out sessions focusing on one of two sections:
    • Food And Drink Companies:
    • Consumer Products Companies, Including Electronics

The first day of this summit will look at how to account for impacts through out the life cycle and creating transparency through standards, while the second day will look into specifics areas of the life cycle and show how companies have been successful in reducing their impacts in those areas.
