João Fontes to moderate panel at SB14London

Next Wednesday, November 5th, João Fontes, Social Footprinting expert at PRé, will moderate a panel formed by DSM, Philips and Marks & Spencer at the conference SB14London, organised by Sustainable Brands. The panel will discuss how social sustainability can contribute to Branding & Communications

In today’s world consumers and stakeholders expect to have clear information about product impact on environmental and social issues. They expect companies to be transparent so they can trust them. In a world of fast-paced communications and increasing transparency, businesses need social impact data to find improvement opportunities and differentiate their products on a competitve market. That goes beyond Risk Management. 

 

PRé has invited experts from DSM, Marks & Spencer, and Philips to form a panel that will discuss the topic and share their cases and insights, regarding: Brand commitments, sustainability strategy and targets; and how Social Sustainability contributes to acomplish their sustainability goals. The panel will be formed by Jacobine das Gupta, Sustainability Manager at DSM; Markus Laubscher, Project Project Manager Circular Economy at Philips; and Hazel Culley, Project Manager Plan A at Marks and Spencer.

 

So, if you are dealing with the same challenges, have the same commitments or would like to have unique insights in how these thought leaders are meeting their customer expectations, make sure to be present at the Breakout session next Wednesday, November 5th at SBLondon14.

While clear rules and standards for environmental LCA have existed for many years, corporate sustainability professionals around the world have suffered from the lack of commonly accepted methodologies for social footprints. To respond to that need, PRé Sustainability convened twelve sustainability experts from leading companies – including BASF, BMW Group, DSM, Goodyear, Philips, L'Oréal, Marks&Spencer and Steelcase – in the Roundtable for Product Social Metrics, aiming to make social impact assessment more accessible and meaningful through the development of a handbook containing an explicit, clearly defined set of principles and metrics.

‘I believe that sustainability is changing busines­ses and people’s mindset. It’s here to stay. You can see the same trend in the way people are communicating nowadays through online channels, such as social media. The Internet allows people to keep in touch on a personal level, even when doing business.’
