Social media provides individuals, communities, businesses, and non-government organizations the ability to connect with business in meaningful discussion from anywhere in the world in real time.  To focus the corporate ear, business sustainability minded organizations are engaging with stakeholders, who have a vested interest in the success of the business and profoundly advance the sustainability conversation. 

Yesterday's virtual conference, Engage CSR 2010 by PRNewswire answered the questions of
  • How are leading brands and organizations showcasing their CSR activities in the social landscape?

  • What are the best practices for success?

With over 1000 registrants and a stellar speaker lineup the virtual format served as the very model of sustainable business strategies we, as sustainability consultants advocate.  The benefits of the virtual conference included: 
  • Conserving Energy

  • Preserving the Environment

  • Increased productivity: flexible scheduling, increased attendee participation

  • Reduced travel cost: airfare, hotels, and meals

  • Reduced carbon emissions

With great delight, I presented on the panel: Social Media and CSR: Exploring the use of content to accelerate business as a change agent for progress.  Our moderator was Fabian Pattberg, founder of the Sustainability Forum; joining us was Suzanne Fallender of Intel and David Connor of Coethica
