#Information and Communications Technology


As if the times we live in weren’t uncertain enough, young and high-growth companies face challenging circumstances as they try to expand business while addressing an increase in interest around sustainability and corporate responsibility initiatives—be it climate change, privacy, diversity, or a range of other important issues.

Disruptive companies understand the value that responsible, sustainable business practices offer, but it’s not always easy to get a sustainability program off the ground given competing priorities that younger companies face, especially during a pandemic.

This convening will bring young and high-growth companies together to share challenges and “cheers” to successes in jump-starting a sustainability program, making progress toward goals, and disclosing efforts to key audiences.

The BSR technology sector team and company representatives will discuss:

  • How to establish a comprehensive and shared sustainability vision for your company
  • How to gain senior-level buy-in by demonstrating the business value of integrating sustainability into corporate strategy
  • How to operationalize sustainability initiatives, make progress, and communicate efforts

Please join us for this free-flowing discussion. We apologize that we can’t treat this time around, but you are welcome to BYOB to the BSR Zoom Bar if you so choose.
