Corporate Accelerators Spark Sustainable Innovation

Instead of innovating in isolation, multinationals are opening their doors and partner with startups to design solutions for their most pressing challenges. Coca-Cola, Google and Disney are only a few of the companies that have captured value of initiating these corporate accelerators. These accelerators increasingly focus on sustainability issues. One of the latest companies entering the stage is Anheuser-Busch InBev (AB InBev). The global beer company has announced its 100+ Accelerator, aiming to address global challenges in line with the group’s 2025 Sustainability Goals.

Digesting Davos: Actionable Insights

The 2018 World Economic Forum (WEF) has once again shown promising sustainability developments, with multinationals, governmental representatives and academics emphasizing rapid change is needed to meet the requirements from the Paris Agreement. However, now that everyone is back to work, the question remains how these nice words become reality and how companies will initiate change. Pricing negative impacts and designing them out through circular innovations could provide solutions.

New York City is suing five major oil companies for their contribution to climate change. This new lawsuit highlights that the time for companies to pay for previously unaccounted externalities may come faster than expected.

Creating Impact through Acceleration of Lean Reporting

The last two years have been defining for corporate non-financial reporting in Europe. The introduction of the EU Directive on the disclosure of non-financial and diversity information (Directive 2014/95/EU) has set a roadmap that is to lead to increased business transparency and accountability on social and environmental issues. And the 28 EU Member States have been turning the Directive into national legislations so companies are now expected to comply with the new disclosure requirements when reporting over fiscal year 2017.

Webcast on Human Capital Development & Eco-Efficiency

On November 30th, the last out of 5 webinars on the DJSI 2017 results was broadcasted by RobecoSAM. The webcast covered the criteria of Human Capital Development and Operational Eco-Efficiency. Both criteria play an important role in the 60 industries addressed by RobecoSAM's questionnaire. As in line with the general trend of the sustainability assessment, those two criteria have shifted towards quantitative questions. Therefore, companies are required to have a data-driven perspective in order to accelerate its performance. In the download section of this article, you can find our summary of the webcast.
