(3BL Media / theCSRfeed) September 14, 2011 - On September 21-23, Social Accountability International (SAI) will be in Portland, Oregon asking sustainability professionals from around the world: "What's Your Social Fingerprint?"

At the ISSP Conference 2011, the first face-to-face summit of ISSP members and other sustainability professionals, SAI's Director of Corporate Programs and Training Direct, Craig Moss, will give the presentation "Social Fingerprint: Practical Tools to Measure and Improve Social Performance," and discuss how this new tool is being used by over 300 companies worldwide to measure and improve their social performance. Participating companies, primarily suppliers to multi-national brands and retailers, have engaged in this program of ratings, training and toolkits.

  Based on over a decade of experience, Social Fingerprint® includes the Social Fingerprint® Company Rating System, the Social Fingerprint® Supply Chain Management Rating System, plus all of the components needed to help companies build capacity immediately. Companies can pick and choose from the Social Fingerprint® program components to enhance their existing corporate code of conduct program, or they can use the program to evaluate their own social performance or that of their suppliers.
