(3BL Media / theCSRfeed) April 27, 2011 - Corporate sustainability experts are increasingly connecting online to discuss trends, share resources, highlight best practices, and brainstorm solutions to sustainability dilemmas. OpenEyeWorld, the online platform for sustainability expert engagement, is the home to a new Sustainability Chat series to provide a forum for in-depth dialogue on controversial and emerging CSR issues to unfold over time. It therefore complements and builds on the success of existing events such as the #CSRchat on Twitter hosted by Fenton, or the Guardian Sustainable Business Blog’s Online Discussions
