Assigning Value to What Matters Most

Summary: 

Welcome to the second post of a new CBSR blog on CSR from a Canadian business perspective! Visit the blog at www.cbsr.ca/blog.

The emerging practice of quantifying the financial value of sustainability has been getting a lot of attention- internationally and locally. Canadian firms are asking: is this activity worth the effort, are the valuation strategies sound and are they going to be adopted widely by companies? It's still early days, but the valuation projects we are seeing now have good potential to: 

  • Drive the internal business case

  • Inform risk management

  • Support business planning - forecasting, pricing and product strategies

  • Deliver cost savings

  • Demostrate commitment to stakeholders and influence competitor

We believe it is time for Canadian companies to make new strides in integrating macro environmental trends into their micro business operations.
