Available to watch on-demand:All three online events from the CSR reporting and communications sessions
edie ran a series of back-to-back online events on sustainability reporting and communications during the coronavirus pandemic, featuring speakers from Innocent Drinks, British American Tobacco, Toast Ale, Capgemini and more. All three sessions are now available to watch on-demand.
In what is a disruptive time for workers all over the globe, it has never been more important to engage with work colleagues, staff, suppliers and stakeholders, not just for your own peace of mind, but to remind them that sustainable business is a long-term journey that requires constant attention.
As such, edie's Engagement Week is aimed at sustainability professionals who are looking to improve and streamline ways to report and communicate on progress to mitigate climate impacts and deliver sustainable business models. It will include an array of exclusive interviews and blogs, insight reports, podcasts and a brand-new online event.
Running from 5-8 May, edie's Engagement Week 2020 included exclusive interviews, podcasts, reports, webinars and in-depth feature articles - all dedicated to helping sustainability and CSR professionals drive stakeholder engagement through robust reporting and captivating communications. See all the content here.
As part of the event, edie hosted an online Sustainability Reporting and Communications Sessions for individuals who are looking to enhance their sustainability reporting practices and adopt innovative communication techniques to build personal engagement and drive meaningful change.
The online event, which is free to access for all edie users, combined three edie webinars into a single afternoon. Each webinar session will have its own edie chair and selection of independent expert speakers, and each session will take a particular format.
Registrants can choose to watch one, two or all three webinar sessions.
