Three things: metric overload, Metric precision, and 3.6 million metric tons Featured

Written by 


Three things this week:

  1. Metric overload? The hundreds of sustainability metrics from the proliferation of reporting frameworks may mean you're not reporting on the most material indicators, and according to this Harvard Business Review article, the fastest growing investor cause is sustainability. 

  2. Metric precision? Critical for your GHG disclosures, but also vital in other areas, the durability of metrics is key: your data has to be accurate, based on science, with goals set in ESG context.

  3. 3.6 million metric tons? That’s the estimated carbon footprint of the Rio Olympics. Their carbon partner Dow Chemical will offset about 2 million of that, the rest to be offset by the state of Rio de Janeiro. Did they miss the mark by not focusing on the water in Guanabara Bay?

Request your ESG metrics scorecard to find out how you’re performing.
