TSSS - How would we recognize Capitalism 2.0 if we saw it? Is it time for a “Gold Standard”? (Toronto, ON)

Feb 7 2012 - 4:30pm
Feb 7 2012 - 7:30pm

The Natural Step Canada is proud to support The Toronto Sustainability Speaker Series (TSSS) and its founder Brad Zarnett.

Are you working to incorporate sustainability into a business strategy?  Are you frustrated or confused by the multitude of standards and where to direct your energy?  Can you imagine how your customers, suppliers and investors feel?  Is the sustainability movement being hampered by this lack of clarity?  Is there a better way to reach Capitalism 2.0?

Join The Toronto Sustainability Speaker Series on February 7th as author and sustainability change agent Dr. Bob Willard explores cutting edge research on an emerging “Gold Standard” to recognize a truly sustainable enterprise – an enterprise that will lead us to Capitalism 2.0. During this interactive discussion Bob will highlight:

  • The global effort to define new standards, principles, indicators, and metrics for a sustainable enterprise
  • Why the current rankings of the most sustainable companies are not helpful
  • Why important stakeholders are anxiously awaiting a better model to assess companies
  • Why companies that have already started to set Gold Standard-like goals have achieved greater profitability, resilience and cultures of innovation
  • Bob’s own suggested environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria for a Gold Standard

This session will provide a sneak peak into where sustainability is going – for those who are serious about staying ahead of the trend, this event is a must attend.
