Event description

Description

Welcome to Misum's launch of the second "Walking the Talk" report – a study of the sustainability communication of Stockholm's large cap companies.

The report explores how Sweden’s largest listed companies communicate their sustainability work. The previous report, published in 2015, received much news media coverage. Come and see how much has changed!

The report analyses what companies communicate: what they say that they will do, and what they say they have done, within Sustainability/Corporate Responsibility (S/CR). We call this their “talk” and “walk”. The research was conducted by Lin Lerpold, Associate Professor and Executive Director, and students Chengcheng Qu and Jonas Skilje, at the Mistra Center for Sustainable Markets (Misum) of the Stockholm School of Economics.

Agenda:

Lin Lerpold, Jonas Skilje & Chengcheng Qu present the report

Panel discussion moderated by Mette Morsing, Professor in Sustainable Markets at Misum:


  • Hendrik Alpen, Sustainability Engagement Manager, H&M
  • Marie Baumgarts, Head of Sustainability, SEB
  • Henrik Essén, Senior Vice President Communication & Sustainability, BillerudKorsnäs
  • Nyamko Sabuni, Vice President Sustainability, ÅF

17:30-18:30 Mingle

The main aim of the report is to explore sustainability communication by companies listed on the Nasdaq OMX Stockholm Large Cap index, of which there are 90 as of summer 2017. In this population only two companies were excluded in the analysis. In particular, we hoped to understand what information external stakeholders can access about companies’ sustainability strategies and initiatives, as well as the extent to which those companies report on implementation. Our variables and indicator schemes are broadly based in extant research and have support in practitioner best practice as it relates to corporate sustainability communication. Our purpose was to facilitate the inclusion of external stakeholders’ input into discussions around corporate sustainability communication and how it can be developed. By comparing the corporate communication of different companies, we hope to support the development of clearer and more coherent S/CR communication across different sectors, and to identify companies that can serve as role models to others.

We hope you can join us! Seats are limited, please register.
