Impact: Buzzword or Call for Action?

April 7, 2022 EcoVadis ‏‏‎

It is the imperative that business leaders be courageous in taking action on sustainability issues. For as Kat Borlongan, Chief Impact Officer at Contentsquare, emphasized: “we increasingly live in a world where you can’t afford to accumulate moral debt.”

Uwe Schulte, Senior Advisor to the European Governance & Sustainability Center at the Conference Board, put it: What do we mean by impact? It is not counting, for example, the number of supplier workshops you do – that’s just input. It doesn’t mean counting the supplier audits you do – that’s just output. What it means is permanent reduction of carbon footprint, or increasing the number of workers in your value chain that have a living wage; that, I call impact.

Speakers in this session:

Kat Borlongan, Director of Impact, Contentsquare

Holly Elwood, Senior Advisor, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

Uwe Schulte, Global Sustainability Center Manager, The Conference Center.
