Workshop: CSR Measurement and Reporting

16 Nov, 2018

February 13, 2019
2 p.m.–4:15 p.m. ET
Washington, DC or Virtual

With dozens of standards and reporting metrics for CSR and sustainability efforts, it’s easy for organizations to suffer analysis paralysis. What metrics will resonate with senior leadership? What data needs to be collected and what is already available? How do we turn these data points into a cohesive narrative and strategy? Our workshop will show you how to determine an appropriate measurement and reporting framework to help your organization move beyond measuring outputs to determining whether your CSR programs are generating impactful outcomes.

Agenda

2 p.m.     CSR Measuring and Reporting: Finding Frameworks and Metrics

Consumers want to see how an organization engages with society, investors look beyond the balance sheet to evaluate how firms are managed, and your firm needs positive stories to tell to elected officials.  These diverse goals and audiences can all be addressed through CSR reporting. But how do you determine which framework is right for you? After you’ve found a roadmap, how do you determine if you’re on the right course? Our experts will share how to set up a strategy that gives you the data you need to make the right decisions.

Our panel will provide:

  • An overview of the fundamentals of CSR measurement and reporting
  • How to determine the key societal and business objectives your program should address
  • How to develop metrics to track inputs, outputs, and outcomes

3:15 p.m. Case Study: Developing a CSR Reporting Strategy

Once an organization has decided to engage in CSR reporting, there are several issues and opportunities to address. Since any effort will require time and resources, how do you get buy-in from senior management for the journey ahead? In what ways will your CSR data inform decisions made in various operational departments? We’ll discuss these key questions and more through an in-depth case study.

We’ll explore the ways in which you can:

  • How to get buy-in for additional reporting from senior management
  • Ways in which CSR reporting can inform other communications and stakeholder relations functions
  • Tools and techniques to streamline workflow and delegate responsibility
