It's Time for Companies to do Less

Sara Adams June 28, 2022

The past two years have seen a proliferation of what companies are supposed to focus on—including a long list of social issues and stakeholders. A focus on many of these are necessary for a company and its community’s resilience. But this wide aperture comes at a cost. CEOs and senior corporate leaders can’t focus on everything, all the time, and expect to do well. Sustainable business, ESG, and DEI practices are ways for companies to understand what’s unique, strategic, and sustainable. Companies that focus on what’s unique or material are rewarded by the market. And the ROI on corporate purpose has long been proven. ESG should be not only about avoiding risk, but also helping companies smartly take risks to solve business and societal challenges and make an impact.

CECP CEO Daryl Brewster in conversation with senior leaders at two of our hundreds of companies will bring to the discussion experiences drawn from being the CEO of a consumer products goods company, insights on a DEI and ESG journey from within the company, a synthesis of the practices of nearly 250 global companies, and the largest most historical data set on corporate responsibility.

Purpose and Desired Outcome

In this session, CECP will outline the strong case for ESG and DEI at a time when it is facing pushback and explain how sustainable business frameworks help companies determine their unique paths towards sustainable value creation. CECP will share its annual Investing in Society report at the conference, including its Strategic ESG Scorecard, and supplement learning through its frameworks such as Long-Term Plans, Forward Looking Disclosure Analysis, and ESG Snapshots. We will utilize Slido to poll the audience on their experiences and impressions, bringing interactivity to the session.
