More and more companies are working hard to do the right thing, and more consumers are trying to understand the impact of what they are buying. A company’s greatest asset is its reputation, whether it is selling to consumers or other businesses. Sustainability claims are not something to be taken lightly. Often, there is an even greater brand risk for those companies willing to begin making the changes their consumers are asking for. In this webinar, we’ll discuss the possible challenges ahead for brands willing to make positive change and we will give an overview of verification strategies, different certification systems and standards and learn the steps a company should follow to ensure that their hard work results in real, positive change.
