Anyone here working in corporate sustainability? I think ‘sustainability’ is often conflated with climate change but it’s so much more. I’m focused on the ES&G elements from a corporate wide perspective (ie not from a purely investment analysis angle). Im interested to hear from those with experiences of getting people from across the org to feed in to sustainability metrics and reporting. Say for example HR feeding in with DE&I metrics.

I haven’t had experience with internal reporting, but with external reporting I find you’re either pulling teeth or the metrics “look bad”. Maybe I’m cynical but I find people don’t like to measure things that they’re going to perform poorly in.

I now work in corp leading sustainability and ESG for a >$3B and <$7B retailer. Step one: connect with leaders across the org with a clear focus on 1) getting to know them well as people beyond just their roles, 2) getting to know the business, value drivers, politics, power/influence nodes, information/insights nodes, brand intricacies, supply chain details, and sponsors and history of DE&I, philanthropy, community engagement, employee resource groups, employee volunteerism, environmental, climate, etc. 3) aligning all sustainability priorities with business strategy, BU or functional objectives, and creating value, 4) find low hanging fruit and quick wins before trying to tackle anything big or sacred (brand, strategy, mission, vision, purpose) 5) if public, deeply understand and prioritize a roadmap and flight path of disclosures to align with TCFD and SASB/VRF and 6) as of Monday, Try to be one step ahead of giving your CFO and IR group some thoughts on how to plan and price out being ready for SEC disclosure rules, should they pass as is plus thoughts on if/how they may be watered down and the implications.

Step 2: execute, measure, adjust.

I left my job where I was at for almost 9 years during the pandemic for another opportunity. My reasons for leaving were just that I wanted more experience with different clients and different people. I've been in my current role for 1.5 years and I'm having second thoughts about my decision. There's a huge part of me that wants to go back to my previous employer because of how supportive they were of me as a working, single Mom, and I have an huge opportunity with them. What would you do?

Anyone live with a general plat exception rather than insisting upon the title company specifying the matters on plat which constitute exceptions? This deal is in Source Carolina, but I don’t think the title company is pushing back because of any state law issue. I’m not accepting the broad exception, but I’m curious how often others do accept that.

Is a white paper with a VC going to be attractive on my CV?
