Calling all innovators & implementers! This month, Sustainable Brands will relaunch an Issue in Focus editorial channel dedicated to showcasing the New Metrics of sustainable business success (#NewMetrics).
With the help of our guest editors, corporate sustainability architect Bill Baue and Paul Herman of HIP Investor, the SB editorial team is seeking features, interviews, columns and case studies to publish throughout the year. This is a great opportunity to showcase the innovations you and your organization have pioneered — sustainable business metrics that strategically link to financial, ecological and social performance.
Our readers are business leaders and strategists seeking information about how others are profitably innovating for sustainability. They seek insights and ideas that might be applied across market sectors about how to drive top-line growth while successfully reducing the impacts of their operations, and engaging key stakeholders along the way.
We evaluate submissions based on currency and relevance of the examples or ideas presented, balance of perspective, strength and clarity of content and delivered principles. See our Writers’ Handbook for further guidelines.
Written, audio or video perspectives on your implementation of sustainability metrics in your business — namely, metrics that measure impacts on the full range of capital beyond financial and monetary, such as quantifiable human, social and natural capital. or example:
If written, please edit to 600-1000 words. See previous submissions here.

Article ideas and submissions will be accepted on an ongoing basis throughout the year; email our editors at the addresses below.
All sustainable business metrics are welcome, including those that help frame the context of how and where organizations operate and interact inside the earth and society at large, or the following categories of impact that HIP Investor outlines in its methodology for rating and ranking sustainability:
