Join Sustainserv Partner Matthew Gardner in collaboration with ModusLink Global Solutions, for a webinar on how to work towards sustainability in your supply chain. To learn more and register....

Supply chain sustainability programs commonly consist of companies struggling to provide information of varying degrees of relevance about their environmental, social and compliance-related programs to their clients and suppliers. Often, this is an exercise done under duress that results in inadequate tangible impacts outside of the added burden it places on all parties.

In this webinar we will:

  • Unveil strategies and collaborative approaches to improving sustainability performance across the value chain
  • Explore options for companies to collaborate effectively
  • Share knowledge and make real improvements on environmental and social performance for all parties
  • Showcase real-life examples of successful collaborations efforts
  • Feature promising approaches for companies across sectors

Sustainserv Lunch Roundtable: Sustainable Development Goals

SDG iconThis event is full and no longer accepting registrations.

In early 2016, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), consisting of 17 goals and 169 associated targets, were introduced to help address global challenges and shift the world to a more sustainable path by 2030.

Many companies are now working to integrate these principles into their strategic, operational and sustainability efforts. But how best to do this? How can we use tools such as the SDG Compass (www.sdgcompass.org)? How can the principles of “materiality” play a role in SDG implementation?

We invite you and your colleagues to a lunch seminar at our Boston Office for a roundtable discussion with other practitioners to learn from each other as to how best to kick-start SDG implementation and share knowledge and information on integrating the SDGs into your organization.

Date: Wednesday, June 29, 2016
Time: 11:30am - 1:30pm
Location: 31 State Street, 10th Floor, Boston, MA

Lunch and parking at the Garage at Post Office Square will be provided.

Webinar on EU Non-Financial Reporting Directive

Bernd Kasemir to present to GRI GOLD Community on EU Non-Financial Reporting Directive


As requirements on "non-financial reporting" are currently being rolled out across the EU's member states, many companies ask what this means for them. Even more than direct reporting mandates for thousands of companies, indirect disclosure pressure on their suppliers will disrupt the reporting landscape. As one of the major frameworks able to help companies respond, GRI is engaged in informing market participants what this means for them.

Sustainserv managing partner Bernd Kasemir has been asked to present at their GRI GOLD community webinar on the requirements for companies under the EU directive this Friday, April 22, 3pm CET. Join us to get to know what this will mean for you.

If you are not able to participate, please feel free to check in with us directly to share expectations on opportunities and challenges of the upcoming requirements.
