Index Webinar Schedule


Today, an emphasis on measurement and transparency underpin all of our endeavors. Our Sustainability Index anchors these efforts. We know that customers want to feel good about the products they buy and the companies they buy from and measurement and transparency are critical to drive innovation and change.

The Sustainability Consortium
The Sustainability Consortium (TSC) uses the best sustainability science to help companies make the everyday products we use better and more sustainable. The products and services of TSC reflect their academic and collaborative values: science-based, stakeholder-informed, and focused on impact. TSC Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) not only help improve the sustainability of the products we use every day, but also drive efficiency by letting suppliers answer a unified set of measurement questions for different retailers. TSC has many resources available for suppliers needing help and/or tools related to answering KPIs and is offering two levels of educational webinars leading up to the 2017 Index.

To help with this initiative, Walmart and EDF are each launching a series of free webinars, helping suppliers learn more about Project Gigaton and the key areas of impact, provide project/product goal examples that could be contributed to Project Gigaton, as well as provide additional tools and resources to help suppliers set and achieve their company emissions reduction goals.
