New Metrics ‘19 advances the role of business in driving economic transformation
The Sustainable Brands® community gathers today in Philadelphia, PA to kick off the 9th annual New Metrics conference. Over 250 global executives, sustainability strategists and finance leaders from companies such as Moody’s, Nasdaq, Bank of the West, IKEA, and Microsoft are gathering to share advancements in next-generation metrics that measure business success, purposeful leadership and long-term value creation, science-based goal setting, and trends in integrated reporting and investor sentiment.
Over 80 speakers are participating in thought-provoking plenaries and collaborative breakout sessions and bringing an extensive exploration of the smart solutions, case studies and tools that are accelerating change to support the creation of positive impact and value for all stakeholders. Key discussion topics and featured speakers include:
“This year’s program covers critical developments and timely topics including a variety of best practices around quantifying social impact, and how to understand and prepare for major disruptions headed toward the C-Suite due to growing sustainability-related risks and liabilities,” states Dimitar Vlahov, Director of Knowledge & Insights at Sustainable Brands. “The business leaders gathering this week in Philadelphia are informing the next generation of goal setting and strategic planning. We are proud to lead the charge toward equipping CSOs and CFOs with important tools, knowledge and partnerships they need to succeed.”
