GlobeScan and SustainAbility are delighted to invite you to a webinar to discuss the results of our assessment of experts’ views on progress toward the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We asked over 500 experienced corporate sustainability professionals in 74 countries to evaluate the progress that has been made on each SDG, to rank their relative urgency and also to share insights into the priorities within their own organizations. Corporate experts were also asked how their own companies are responding to the...
During the US Presidential campaign, the then-candidate Donald Trump consistently touted his business credentials as an asset for how he would be successful as the nation’s Chief Executive. We have now experienced the Trump administration for over 60 days, and it is interesting to assess the manner in which he is governing compared to what we know to be the tenets of successful corporate leadership. Leaving aside any perceptions about the policy ideas expressed by the administration, it is curious...
The trust deficiency that many businesses are facing is an underlying threat to their license to operate, that also undermines the reputation equity. Trust has become such a critical strategic issue that it needs to be fully integrated as part of risk management, and this evolution has reshuffled the cards for corporate affairs practitioners. Managing trust risk requires a better understanding of the meaning of trust as a concept, and of its core components in order to deliver a holistic strategy...
In September 2016, GlobeScan was excited to partner with Hewlett Packard Enterprises (HPE) to deliver the fourth Living Progress Exchange (LPX). Building on the success of previous LPXs we went a step further with the latest version by holding an online dialogue simultaneously with an in-person panel at the GreenBiz VERGE conference. Our preparation and planning paid off as we were able to drive a very interesting discussion on the opportunities for and challenges of leveraging the Internet of Things (IoT)...

This month we put the spotlight on Africa and the challenges facing organizations operating in the region. We are in the midst of great transformation across Africa and the opportunities for sustainable development have never been more plentiful.  In an aging world, Africa has the advantage of a young and growing population and will soon have the fastest urbanized rate in the world. Accelerated technological change is unlocking new opportunities for consumers and businesses, and Africa still has abundant resources and...
  Prior to our webinar and publication of a new GlobeScan report that aims to surface the main challenges, most compelling opportunities, and best practices in trust management, we asked GlobeScan CEO, Christophe Guibeleguiet, for his views on how corporate affairs professionals can manage trust risk within their organizations. Based on your experience of advising multinationals, and engaging with their stakeholders, what are the main challenges facing global organizations today?  The challenges are both strategic and operational.  Strategically, shifting stakeholder demands and...

When something is described as a “team sport” it means that success can only be achieved when everyone on the team works together, and toward the same goal. How can this principle apply to corporate sustainability? The latest results of our 8th annual BSR-GlobeScan “State of Sustainable Business Survey” drive home the fact that, for companies to make greater progress in sustainability, all the players on the team (and the coach) need to work together much more effectively. The 2016 results...

The forum brought together experts from around the world to create a dialogue where we can learn from others, inspire fresh thinking...
The Internet of Things’ (IoT) potential to drive transformative change in the environmental, social and economic spheres is a source of hope and excitement. However, while some companies are delivering examples of where this potential is becoming reality, is the progress quick enough and at a large enough scale to help address the rapid onset of global challenges we face? Just as with Internet more broadly, no one owns the Internet of Things. So how do we ensure that the...
