Sustainability is good for business. This is evidenced by an ever-growing body of research, Wall Street reports, and the financial performance of companies. As a result, more and more companies are moving beyond mandatory compliance with regulatory requirements to a long-term sustainability strategy completely embedded into their culture and everyday operations.
In this webinar, Steve Bolton, Research Director at Verdantix, and Joerg Walden, CEO of iPoint, will discuss how technology and automated data management processes can be leveraged to accompany firms on their journey from product compliance to sustainability, enable companies to create longer-term sustainability roadmaps, and accelerate the transition to a circular economy.
