Join Sustainable Brands member companies on 22 July at 8-9 am Pacific in a webinar to learn more about the frontier of sustainability accounting and impact valuation. It will feature the Value Balancing Alliance, a coalition of multinational companies working to create a single standardized method to ensure greater sustainability, transparency and comparability in business by translating environmental and social impacts into monetary terms comparable to financial data and thereby moving beyond profit maximization to value optimization.

During the webinar, three expert speakers will discuss the newest trends and important learnings. The Value Balancing Alliance will explain the collaborative work multiple companies have done to develop and test new concepts to measure the value of corporate behaviour and business models in real life. Mitsubishi Chemical and Philip Morris International will build on that methodological basis and collective perspective and share concretely how their companies incorporate impact valuation into their work, what their investors expect, and how other companies can get involved.

The Value Balancing Alliance is a non-profit organisation of multinational companies with the common goal of developing a standardised methodology to ensure greater sustainability and transparency in business. It is supported by the four largest professional services firms – Deloitte, EY, KPMG and PwC – as well as by the OECD, the World Economic Forum and leading academic institutions, including the University of Oxford and the Impact Weighted Accounts Initiative at Harvard Business School.
