Have you ever wished for a tool that could provide a rapid assessment of your company’s “sustainability score”; one that might even inform your sustainability reporting?

Join this lunch and learn and gain an introduction to the S-CORE Sustainability Assessment.

In this session our speakers will use S-CORE as a “rapid-assessment” opportunity for businesses to gain a quick, high-level appreciation for leading, triple-bottom-line practices and their organization’s current level of progress.

This webinar is an opportunity to:

  • kick-start the sustainability planning process;
  • learn an approach & language to engage senior management or others in your organization in the sustainability conversation;
  • re-energe your sustainability efforts and Team.

What you will Learn

In this Lunch & Learn Webinar, we will

  • provide an introduction to the S-CORE process;
  • lead you through a selection of business practices from the Sustainability Coordinator/Director of Sustainability module of S-CORE;
  • share three benchmarks and associated actions at various levels of sustainability performance. For example – the “incubator” level (1 point) represents better than status quo and typical performance for those early in their implementation. The “initiative” level (3 points) represents the performance expected of an organization with a formal sustainability effort. The “integrated” level (9 points) represents best practice, performance in organizations where sustainability is fully integrated;
  • help you rate you organization’s performance on a 0-9 scale for each practice and discuss your results with others; and
  • examine “Best in Class” responses compared to a “benchmark” for businesses overall.
