CSRHub’s Cynthia Figge Speaking at Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship Conference
CSRHub’s CEO Cynthia Figge will be speaking at the Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship 2018 International Corporate Citizenship Conference held on April 8-10 in Los Angeles, CA.
Cynthia will be providing scheduled demonstrations of CSRHub to attendees during the breakout sessions. The session description is below.
CSRHub: Benchmark, Evaluate, and Improve Company Sustainability Performance
Companies are experiencing increasing pressure for more ESG reporting and transparency. They need a consistent way to benchmark their corporate social responsibility and ESG (environmental, social, governance) progress to improve performance. Managers also need to assess how their disparate stakeholders (ranging from investor analysts to the proliferating “best of” lists) perceive them and make sure the market evaluates them correctly.
CSRHub’s aggregation of disparate data sources to form strong consensus ratings with underlying comparative data enables companies to better manage stakeholder perceptions.
If you are attending the BCCCC conference, please join the CSRHub session to see examples of easy-to-use dashboards, benchmark reports, and stakeholder mapping tools. Learn how to use transparency and disclosure as a tool to drive strategic return. See how you can pinpoint issues and better align your CSR values with market value.
Please let us know if you will be there and would like to join a session.
