CSRHub’s Cynthia Figge Speaking at EarthShift Webinar, Using Benchmarking to Evaluate Suppliers
CSRHub’s Cynthia Figge will be leading a ‘brown bag’ webinar for EarthShift called Using Benchmarking to Evaluate Suppliers, on November 20th from 1 - 2:00pm ET.
EarthShift is offering a series of weekly 'brown bag' webinars. These are free webinars covering a wide range of topics and delivered by leaders in their respective fields.
EarthShift’s founder, Lise Laurin, attended a presentation by Cynthia Figge at a conference earlier this year and wished immediately that all of her colleagues, clients and friends could have been there to attend. This thought was the catalyst for the creation of the “Brown Bag’ webinar series. Mrs. Laurin said of the presentation “Metrics of sustainability is such a hot topic right now and CSRHub has interesting way of looking at it.”
CSRHub provides access to corporate social responsibility and sustainability ratings and information on 8,400+ companies from 135 industries in 104 countries. Managers, researchers and activists use CSRHub to benchmark company performance, learn how stakeholders evaluate company CSR practices and seek ways to change the world. In this webinar you will learn how to use CSRHub to benchmark your supply chain with Cynthia Figge, COO and Cofounder, CSRHub.
