The Healthy Business Coalition, a cross-sector collaborative initiative convened by BSR and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, will host this Sustainability Matters webinar to introduce our new tool to help companies select and adopt metrics toward tracking and scaling healthy business programs.

This webinar will showcase the upcoming Healthy Business Metrics Guide, which advances a framework for corporate action to benefit the health of employees, consumers, and communities. This guide builds on the Healthy Business Toolkit, a series of tools designed to help companies overcome internal barriers to investing in ground-breaking healthy business initiatives. The Metrics Guide leverages public health expertise and current corporate sustainability reporting practices to provide a framework and inventory for companies to select and apply health metrics.

Senior Vice President Laura Gitman will lead a review of the new guide and facilitate a discussion with Manny Kiesser from The Walt Disney Company on how the company tracks and implements these efforts.

Speakers

  • Manny Kiesser, Medical Systems and Metrics Manager, Health Services, The Walt Disney Company
  • Laura Gitman, Chief Operating Officer, BSR
