9/24 Webinar: Getting Ready for the Sustainability Index

Last day to register is 9/22

On July 16th, Walmart launched a bold new initiative to assess companies and products along its supply chain. The Index asks 15 key questions, and its depth and complexity has immediately become a subject of debate. It also sets the stage for how we will understand and define ‘sustainability’, reflecting the view of the world’s largest retailer, Walmart, in partnership with academics, NGOs, industry groups, and other retailers.

Are you ready to comply?

Join Rand Waddoups, Walmart’s Senior Director for Sustainability, in conversation with GreenBiz.com Executive Editor Joel Makower to discuss the Sustainability Index and answer your questions. In this exclusive fast-paced and informative 90-minute session you’ll gain valuable insights that will help your firm:

* Understand the details of the Index and its ramifications for your company
* Understand how Walmart plans to use the information in the Index
* Get the information needed to develop your own plan for meeting or exceeding the expectations set by the Index.

This 90-minute webinar will include extensive time for audience Q&A. It’s an unprecedented opportunity to gain understanding and insight directly from Walmart on the details behind the Sustainability Index.

The Sustainability Index is set to have a far-reaching impact in the management of supply chains. Whether you’re a Walmart supplier, or a professional involved in supply chain management and sustainability, you can’t afford to miss this important event. Registration per attendee is $99.
