Science and Purpose-based Sustainability Goals: From Theory to Action featuring Ronald Cotterman, Vice President of Sustainability at Sealed Air
Traditionally companies have set goals bottom up (or inside-out) based on what they think they can do on an incremental bases. But more companies are setting new targets that take a larger view of the world and its limits, like the 51 companies that have signed on to CDP's Science Based Targets. Leading companies are basing goals on a combination of science, ethics and moral standards, and a value-chain systemic view, and connecting the company to a larger purpose and societal need.

Improving Product Sustainability through Consumer Behavior and Product Design featuring Ronald Cotterman, Vice President of Sustainability at Sealed Air
When considering how to meet sustainability goals, companies may engage with consumers directly to influence more sustainable behavior, or may work "behind the scenes" on collaborative solutions within an industry sector that makes the options available to consumers more sustainable with no effort on their part. This workshop will use case studies from a variety of industries to explore different routes to improving the overall sustainability performance of products during their use.

Business Value and Sustainability Reporting, Connecting the Dots featuring Dan Daggett, Executive Director, Sustainability at Sealed Air
Sustainability reporting has grown and matured. There are new standards to consider such as SASB in addition to the more widely adopted CDP and GRI, but how does one navigate what to report and how that fits with their business? The most successful reporting efforts are those that deliver tangible business value through connecting proof of performance with stakeholder groups who have specific expectations. This panel discussion will explore best practices and lessons learned from veterans of the reporting world, building off of the framework presented at last year's GreenBiz 15.
