“Sustainability Metrics: A Tale of Two Companies”
“Sustainability Metrics: A Tale of Two Companies”
At the time of this podcast on World FM Day, Lynn Baez and Alana Dunoff had just completed a webinar entitled Sustainability Metrics, A Tale of 2 Companies, where they focused on transforming business and operations data into a sustainability framework that their clients welcomed for its clarity and value. Communication and culture are key, we FMs often say. But, while the client’s goal is sustainability, getting from the object (records and data) to objectives (what can the client accomplish, and how) requires technical understanding, cultural acceptance, and much more.
