In 2004, Jill Buck founded Buck Consulting, which helps businesses achieve profitability through sustainability. She teaches business leaders how to quantify ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) initiatives in order to meet reporting standards for third party ratings like the Global Reporting Initiative, as well as the Dow Jones Sustainability Index and the NASDAQ Global Sustainability Index. Jill’s proven techniques help businesses drive revenue up and costs down through environmentally responsible business practices, and her training is applicable across all industry sectors. 

Jill is a global thought leader in sustainable business systems. In August 2007, she was invited to serve on the International Appraisal Committee for the Daonong Center for Enterprise, a think tank formed by the China Entrepreneur Club. Jill was one of the VIP speakers for the 1st Green Business Summit in Beijing on Earth Day 2008, and has given training sessions in sustainable business practices at numerous conferences in China since that time. Jill serves as a Strategic Advisor for the Joint U.S. China Cooperative on Clean Energy (JUCCCE).
Jill is an international featured speaker at business, public policy, political, and environmental conventions, and is one of the nation’s leading advocates of free market solutions for environmental protection issues. Jill has been featured in such publications as U.S. Mayor, Working Mother Magazine, Women’s Health Magazine, Ebony Magazine, Diablo Magazine’s “Women to Watch”, Cleveland Business Connects Magazine, and Supermarket News.

Jill is the host of “Go Green Radio,” a weekly program on the U.S.’s largest internet talk radio station, http://www.voiceamerica.com/show/1303/go-green-radio. 

Jill Buck is an alumna of the University of Illinois, and after graduation, was commissioned a Naval Officer. While stationed at the Fleet Training Center, San Diego, she served as the Legal, Physical Security, Admin, and Command Inspection Officer, as well as a Damage Control Instructor. She is an honor graduate of the Military Justice School, and a graduate of the Navy’s small arms weapons course, taught by former Navy Seals.

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.
