Join BSR and Best Buy for a breakfast event on effective management of sustainability issues as they are raised by stakeholders.

On any given day, corporate sustainability professionals face a wide variety of issues from both internal and external stakeholders. Efficient and satisfactory management of these sustainability issues can be a challenge, raising questions such as: Is the issue material to our stakeholders broadly, our sustainability context, and our business success? Is our current strategy sufficient and sufficiently communicated? Are we well-prepared to respond in a consistent and timely manner? Where do the roles and responsibilities of the corporate sustainability team begin and end?

BSR staff and member company representatives will share insights and provide real-world examples of how to manage sustainability issues effectively and efficiently as they are raised by stakeholders.

The agenda will feature:

  • Presentations from BSR, Best Buy, and member companies
  • An interactive session designed as a group brainstorm
  • Open Q&A with leaders in issue management
  • Informal networking over coffee and breakfast

Speakers

  • Eric Olson, Senior Vice President, BSR
  • Jorgette Mariñez, Associate Director, Consumer Sectors, BSR
  • Additional speakers to be announced.
