Briefing, Paper, and Brochure
As I reviewed the conference website I came across links to download several interesting documents. You will need to provide your contact information and your role to obtain these fre.e reports, but I think it’s worth doing to receive the up-to-date information that could be very helpful to you in preparing to work in this field or deepening your knowledge of the field.
- CSR Briefing : This briefing contains a series of articles and information about the latest CSR challenges and effective profitable solutions. In this document you’ll find examples, case studies, observations from the field, trends, and interviews.
- At the VERY end of this briefing, you’ll find a link to a Discussion Paper that could be very valuable to you if you intend to work in Sustainability within a corporate or organizational setting. The paper entitled Objection Handling: A Professional’s Guide to Overcoming Objections to Sustainability Adoption and Implementation describes the Top Ten Objections to Sustainability and tips for handling these objections. This paper is provided by the Toronto Sustainability Speaker Series.
