Impact: Buzzword or Call for Action?

April 7, 2022 EcoVadis EN

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.
