{Past Event} - Climate/Energy Series: Disclose, Assess, Improve: Sustainability Reporting Best Practice

January 15, 2014 - 2:00 pm - January 15, 2014 - 3:00 pm -- Eastern Standard Time


Each year, large organizations are required to file a library's worth of sustainability reports that request different data, in different formats, for different purposes. Increasingly, they're forcing this burden upon their supply chains as well. With investors, regulators and consumers demanding greater transparency and accountability, the stakes have never been higher.

This discussion will look at the best techniques for engaging stakeholders, identifying reporting needs, managing data and disclosure across a large organization and its supply chain. A panel including a sustainability reporter, a sustainability protocol official, and the CEO of a sustainability software provider will share techniques for collecting and reporting qualitative and quantitative data, discuss how to derive maximum value from the data disclosed and how to take action to correct deficiencies and capture opportunities.

Measurabl is building new technology for sustainability reporting and is now exploring how to apply its innovate software to ease the sustainability reporting burden in the healthcare sector (Practice Greenhealth, Global Reporting Initiative, Carbon Disclosure Project). Join for a panel discussion with Matt Ellis, CEO of Measurabl, Cleveland Clinic’s Jon Utech and the Global Reporting Initiative’s Mike Wallace for a discussion around data collection, management and sustainability reporting. 


  • Learn how to collect and report qualitative and quantitative data for reporting purposes.
  • See examples of peer benchmarking and opportunity analysis.
  • Learn how to take action to correct deficiencies or seize opportunities.
