Sustainable By Design: implementing new performance metrics for innovative projects and enterprises?

Sustainable By Design: implementing new performance metrics for innovative projects and enterprises?

Workshop
Curated by Lift
Thu, Feb. 11 2016 - 16:30 to 18:00
Room 14, level 2

How to reorient corporate activity and innovation towards sustainability? Can we natively measure financial performance together with environmental performance? What new, accessible and common indicators, accounting methods and tools, and reporting mechanisms can we design to help in that process?

This workshop, co-designed by the Transitions2 network and the MIT Climate CoLab, invites participants who believe that environmental and economic performance should now be measured simultaneously and given a similar importance - and are interested in discussing how this could be achieved in real life.

Its concrete outcome could be the launch of one of the Climate CoLab's "contests", harnessing the collective intelligence of thousands of people from all around the world to create, analyze, and select detailed proposals to make innovation "sustainable by design".
