Engaging and influencing during the UN General Assembly
September 23, 2019 /3BL Media/ The 74th annual United Nations General Assembly – ‘UNGA74’ – is underway, as representatives from the 193 UN member states meet in New York.
This global gathering is a catalyst for high-level meetings, events and conferences, a number of which are very relevant to GRI’s work to promote sustainability reporting and corporate transparency, in the context of progress towards sustainable development.
Kick off Conference Season with Labor Day Savings on 3BL Forum!
The competition, the elation, the despair, the intensity—it's that time of year again.
But we're not talking about football being back. We're talking about the kick off to conference season!
No industry has more potential to change the hearts and minds of consumers than sports—putting stakeholders in a unique position to be a force for good by inspiring positive change where we live and play. That’s why 3BL Forum: Brands Taking Stands - What’s Next is proud to partner with Green Sports Alliance.
In June, global outdoor lifestyle brand Timberland teamed up with Sustainable Brands and Detroit’s Green Living Science to revitalize the Lincoln Street Art Park, a formerly abandoned industrial site turned sculpture park. More than 50 volunteers pulled on their boots to make a difference and completed multiple projects to improve the area. This video provides an overview of the event and its impact.
At the risk of being a drowned voice in a sea of many, I’d like to passionately applaud the 181 CEOs in your membership that signed on to support a new, modernized definition of “the purpose of a corporation”— one that expands beyond simply maximizing shareholder returns to be more inclusive of actions that benefit employees, customers, the environment and society at large.
Measuring the Impact of Your Social Investments... Who Cares?
Your company is dedicating time and resources to be a responsible corporate citizen. Are those efforts working? Are they having an impact? Does anyone care if they are or aren't? How do you communicate the importance of measurement to stakeholders who don't see the value, and how do you communicate your impact to those who do?
Event professionals urged to provide their input and help build a more sustainable industry
LONDON, August 1, 2019 /3BL Media/ — Event industry professionals across the globe are being urged to take part in a vital initiative this month “Engaging the global event industry with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.”
Timberland helped restore a school garden and created a 3500-square foot pop-up park at the festival with 4,000 attendees pledging to be a hero for nature and live a greener life
As a Timberland intern, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to represent the brand this past April through our partnership with Pharrell Williams’s Something in The Water Festival (SITW) in Virginia Beach, VA. I’ve volunteered at music events before, but I had no idea I was going to experience so much more.
SITW was the first event of its kind for Virginia Beach. Pharrell once said if he “made it” he’d come back to Virginia one day to do something big. And he did. He created a three-day celebration of community, art, sustainability, and of course, music.
