On September 12, GlobeScan hosted a webinar with the International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM) to explore the latest perspectives on opportunities and challenges facing the sector. ICMM's CEO Tom Butler and Research Manager Fernanda Diez were joined by GlobeScan co-CEO Chris Coulter and Associate Director Lionel Bellier for a lively and evidence-rich discussion on the mining industry’s progress towards sustainable development, and the role of ICMM in channelling industry leadership in responsible business practices. Drawing on GlobeScan's primary research amongst ICMM’s stakeholders the...
GlobeScan has been tracking global public perceptions and engagement around climate change since 1998. We have also convened consumers and stakeholders through focus groups, interviews, and events to understand key opinions, barriers, and opportunities around climate action. Through all these years of research, a common and frustrating theme has emerged: climate change has a major PR problem, and it’s not necessarily getting any better. For global corporations, governments, and civil society organizations to be able to take the urgent action...
With all that has happened over the past 12 months, it felt appropriate to include this Star Wars reference in the title of this blog. Far from being gratuitous, I use it to highlight the positive reaction that many businesses have had to the significant political shocks and instability that we have been witnessing. In BSR and GlobeScan’s ninth annual Sustainable Business Survey, a majority of corporate sustainability professionals say they are confident that their companies will stay the course on...
Cranfield University came to GlobeScan with a mission – they wanted to understand what needs to be done to unlock opportunities for sustainable entrepreneurship, and they needed a way to crowdsource ideas on the topic from a vast range of stakeholders. Their goal was the final milestone concluding EU-InnovatE, an EU-funded research project investigating the innovative and entrepreneurial roles of individuals and organisations to shape a green economy. Together we embarked on the Sustainability Innovation Exchange. We coupled GlobeScan’s experience in...
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...
