WE CUSTOMIZE WEBINARS:
Example: Creating a Successful Sustainability Plan - What is it? How do I get one?
In recent years we have seen a flurry of Sustainability Plans, such as the Unilever Sustainable Living Plan, Walmart’s Sustainability 360, and PespiCo’s Performance with a Purpose. While each Sustainability Plan is unique to the company, it is clear that behind many of the high profile initiatives there is a comprehensive set of measurable targets, ambitious goals, and attention to detail. The most powerful common attribute of successful plans is that they are instantly recognizable and act as a metaphor for a company’s sustainability goals and ambitions.
Corporate Citizenship, the global corporate responsibility and sustainability consulting firm, recently published, Steps to Sustainable Success, a groundbreaking report that outlines for the first time, step-by-step, what it takes for a business to create a successful Sustainability Plan. Based on a study of Fortune Global 500 and FTSE100 companies, the report identifies five key attributes and ten essential elements of a successful Sustainability Plan.

What is the value in creating a Sustainability Plan?
What qualities are shared by the Sustainability Plans seen to date and how do they differ?

Completed: Smarter Mobility: Alternative Fuels for the Future
Thursday, June 23, 2011 noon-1pm EST
The future of business is tied to the future of energy.
As economies in developing and emerging regions catch up with the West, people and products are traveling farther and more often. Energy use for transport is escalating, prices are soaring, and current supply sources will not meet an increased demand. To cope with these challenges the world requires "smarter mobility".
A key driver of smarter mobility will be the development of fuel cells and new and more sustainable alternative fuels. This webinar will provide greater insights into the breakthroughs in creating scalable alternative fuel sources that will make sustainable transport a reality.
Join Harvard Business Review and Harvard professor Shriram Ramanathan for an interactive video webinar focused on the role of future fuel sources and the latest developments in fuel cell technology. Professor Ramanathan has deep experience in this area; he heads a team at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences that has developed the first macro-scale thin-film solid-oxide fuel cell (SOFC), a potential new source of clean, portable energy.
While SOFCs have previously worked at the micro-scale, this is the first time any research group has overcome the structural challenges of scaling the technology up to a practical size with a proportionally higher power output.
If fuel matters to your supply chain and your business, join this HBR webinar to learn how the demonstration of this fully functional SOFC indicates the potential of electrochemical fuel cells to be a viable source of clean energy.
Join Professor Ramanathan and Harvard Business Review on June 23.
Energy Opportunities is a series of global webinars and executive think tanks presented by CNBC and Harvard Business Review.
