Summary of Webcast on Policy Influence & Human Rights

On October 5th, the second out of 5 webinars on the DJSI 2017 results was broadcasted by RobecoSAM. The webcast covered the newly introduced criterion on Policy Influence, as well as the questions on Human Rights. Both criteria have become more data-driven, indicating that RobecoSAM is merely looking for quantitative based answers rather than qualitative stories. Furthermore, the public disclosure is a major assessment aspect for both topics. In the download section of this article, you can find our summary of the webcast.

Training: Accelerating Your Circular Economy Game Plan

Breaking down the $4.5 trillion potential of the circular economy and capture company-specific value remains a vital challenge for many organizations. The circular economy is very broad as a concept – at Finch & Beak, we found that companies have trouble finding a concrete starting point to identify tangible business opportunities within their business and are lacking a common understanding of the topic.

RobecoSAM and Bloomberg: Changing the Game

Earlier this year, RobecoSAM already announced its new partnership with Bloomberg, a principal provider of business and financial information. As a result, the performance of the Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA) of all companies that have been appraised will be accessible by the Bloomberg licensees. This might come as a shock to those companies that have been assessed - often without their knowledge - based on publicly available information only.

How Frontrunners Turn Societal Topics into Business Opportunities

At the World Economic Forum 2016 the launch of the full scale attack on global food waste “Champions 12.3” was announced. Its aim is to halve global food waste and reduce food losses per capita by 2030. The involvement of CEOs of major companies DSM, Nestlé, Rabobank, Tesco and Unilever demonstrate how a materiality matrix and data can be used beyond reporting purposes. Of course, reporting and rankings such as the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) are important to demonstrate your sustainability performance towards stakeholders. But in the end it is not the holy grail, as frontrunners show how they are capturing value from sustainability today.
