Welcome to new Corporate Citizenship CEO, Neil Davy

We are pleased to announce Neil Davy to the role of Chief Executive Officer. Neil joins from Tomorrow’s Company, a think tank specialising in responsible and sustainable business. Prior to this, Neil consulted with business, government and civil society organisations on cross-sector partnerships and inclusive business models, and also spent 15 years in global roles in WPP, Dentsu Aegis and Omnicom operating companies based in the UK and in Asia. He comments: “I’m thrilled to join Corporate Citizenship at what truly is an exciting time for the business. Having celebrated a milestone 20th anniversary last year, Corporate Citizenship have long been pioneers in the field of sustainability and corporate responsibility. Their longstanding client list is testament to this and I’m looking forward to leading the business into its next stage of growth.”

Supporting Gender Diversity in the Workplace

Corporate Citizenship recently hosted a webinar to discuss how companies can support gender diversity in the workplace and across their value chains. With less than 4 weeks until the Gender Pay Gap reporting deadline for UK companies, our research found only 7% had submitted their data. Joined by Jan Bibby, Vodafone’s Head of Organisational Effectiveness for AMAP Region, we explored the value of having gender diverse teams, risks of inaction and the practical steps companies can take to become responsible employers.

IR meets CR: Do Investors Care About Sustainability?

Last month, Corporate Citizenship held its largest conference to date. Kindly hosted by Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) and in partnership with the Investor Relations Society, we welcomed over 140 IR and CR professionals to discuss and debate the barriers to closer alignment as part of our Long-Term Value Project.

Improving your DJSI Performance

Since its launch in 1999, the Dow Jones Sustainability Index’s (DJSI) ground-breaking approach – focusing on the economic, environmental and social factors that directly affect companies’ long-term financial performance – has helped to firmly establish these issues with mainstream investors. With just a few short weeks until submissions open for 2018, Corporate Citizenship are running three webinars to help companies improve their performance in their regions:
Date: Thursday 15th March 2018
Session 1: Australia/NZ 11am-12pm AEDT Register here

What do the G20's TCFD recommendations mean for company reporting in the UK?

From 2018 onwards, investors will expect companies across all industries to make increasingly detailed disclosures on climate risk. These new recommendations from the G20 Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) are already being integrated into widely used disclosure frameworks - including this year’s 2018 CDP and DJSI questionnaires.

In partnership with CDSB (Climate Disclosure Standards Board), Corporate Citizenship will be hosting a workshop to provide an overview of how UK companies can report on climate-related risks and opportunities using the TCFD recommendations, with some practical suggestions for integrating climate and financial information into your annual report.

How sustainable are corporate pensions?

Climate change, the low-carbon transition and sustainable development pose some of the greatest challenges of the 21st century. The global transition is well underway and has urgent and wide-ranging implications for companies, policymakers and investors. This requires integrated thinking across the board from corporates - but do workplace pensions schemes and business strategies sufficiently reflect this?
