Do You Perform Like a 21st Century Business Leader? 

“Sustainability” is a worn out catch phrase in many circles, but in the world of finance, it’s one of the metrics that could determine who invests in your company, and who sees you as a liability. If your company is not ready to report on its sustainability initiatives, you absolutely must catch up, and Jill Buck will help you. For over a decade, Jill has been recognized as a global thought leader in sustainable business systems, and is an international featured speaker at business, public policy, and political conferences. 

Sustainability, or ESG (Environment, Social, and Governance), reporting is becoming increasingly mainstream. Since the introduction of more than 100 ESG metrics to the Bloomberg Terminal in 2009, data has been gathered on more than 5,000 of the most actively traded public companies, and that data is now public to investors. Jill can help you develop procedures to:

  • Increase logistics efficiency
  • Decrease packaging costs
  • Minimize pollution and regulatory risks
  • Lower operating costs
  • Verify worker safety in overseas suppliers
  • Measure your company’s carbon footprint
  • And much more…

The investment and banking communities have begun utilizing this information for evidence that companies are adequately assessing and managing economic risks associated with environmental and social issues. These economic risk factors have been highlighted by cases such as: Coca Cola’s competition for local water supplies in India; Walmart’s adverse publicity after the Tazreen factory fire in Bangladesh; and Apple’s perception problems related to working conditions at Foxconn. 

In addition to ESG data on Bloomberg Terminals, other entities have begun to measure ESG performance, e.g. Reuters, the Dow Jones Sustainability Index, and the NASDAQ Global Sustainability Index.

Companies engaged in ESG reporting are actively pursuing methods to quantify their operations in terms of environmental and social impact, but the greatest challenge is developing policies and procedures to create sustainable business operations that are measurable – and therefore, manageable. Jill Buck can train any sized group to meet this challenge. 

Editor of 2GreenEnergy

“Jill was the most single knowledgeable interviewer I’ve ever encountered. I thought I’d just provide here the description she wrote to introduce her listeners to the show, as well as the remarkably astute questions she asked. This show runs far better than a Swiss watch. The engineer who made this all happen was amazing. “This show is about getting at the truth. It’s not about posturing or advocating for a cause merely out of ignorance of the opposing point’s perspective. It’s about asking big, bold, irreverent questions, in this case: What precisely will happen if we move to renewable energy? Who will benefit? Who will lose? Jill wants to explore the good and the bad, the holy and the heretical. In a phrase, she asks her guests to “bring it on.” To steal (and then bastardize) a phase from one of my favorite movies, “A Few Good Men” I leave you with this: “She can HANDLE the truth.”

University of Illinois

"Jill Buck's thought-provoking keynote address was a highlight at the 2013 Power and Energy Conference at Illinois. An enthusiastic and engaging speaker, Jill kept us thinking and talking about energy policy long after her talk ended."

TN Environmental Conference

"Everything was absolutely perfect with Jill! She could not have possibly done a better job. We were so pleased and only heard positive comments from our attendees! Thanks so much for helping organizing!"
