50 Board Meetings . . . One Question

In our experience, having participated in over fifty Fortune 500 Board of Directors meetings, there is always one question the independent sustainability advisor is asked: “How do we stack up?”

Corporate Sustainability Scorecard – Example Ratings

The Corporate Sustainability Scorecard was developed for CEOs and board members to answer that question – and to provide C-suite executives with a “framework” for taking action. This simple tool measures progress on your company’s sustainability journey and helps you to plan strategically. The Corporate Sustainability Scorecard™ C-suite rating system is a comprehensive assessment and planning tool. Executives use the Scorecard to answer three simple questions:

  1. How do we stack up today (on a one-to-four maturity scale) vis-à-vis sustainability – compared with:
    • Competitors and other peer companies?
    • Best practices today?
    • Where we think leaders are heading?
  2. Where do we want to be tomorrow – given…
    • The competitive landscape?
    • Our own ambitions?
    • The speed needed to win in the marketplace?
  3. How do we get from here to there?

Since 1999, over 50 major companies globally have used the Scorecard to hone their sustainability strategy and implementation. The Scorecard provides a logical, structured framework that speaks the language of the CEO and board. It helps shape strategic conversations and set priorities.

It is easy to use; allows several people to do inputs; enables the user to “stop and save” — and view interim results and ratings.
