Into the sustainability labyrinth: Lundquist event provides guidance on a distinctive response to mandatory reporting

It’s a critical moment for corporate sustainability in Italy and companies turned out in force at an event we held in Milan last week to hear how to turn this year’s legal obligation on non-financial transparency into an opportunity.


We hosted over 60 participants from 38 registered companies at TIMSpace for a morning of presentations and conversations about the merits of a distinctive approach to sustainability for the benefit of the entire business, covering topics of sustainability strategies, non-financial reporting, stakeholder engagement and communications. Entitled “Nel Labirinto della Sostenibilità” (In the Sustainability Labyrinth), the event warned about the dangers of having a narrow, compliance-oriented response to the requirements of the Italian decree mandating reporting on some social and environmental matters (read our blog post on how the decree is changing the Italian sustainability scenario – in Italian.)
