Wendy Phippen, Director of Environmental Compliance and Sustainability, Microsoft
Companies are stepping up to make transformational environmental commitments to reduce their carbon emissions, waste, and reliance on non-renewable raw materials. An important component of these commitments is transparency. Transparency is crucial to holding companies accountable, empowering the customer and improving the customer experience. Transparency can include: Publicly tracking progress through annual reports, producing product specific documents disclosing environmental aspects and impacts, delivering benefit calculators such as a carbon calculator, and engaging in open and honest dialog. We will walk through how transparency can empower customers and, in turn, empower the company to reach their commitments.
As demands from buyers increase, manufacturers have become increasingly transparent, but the stakes are high. We explore what transparency really means and how we can ensure that more knowledge leads to more sustainability.
