Conference Theme: The Sustainability Imperative: A Strategic Role for Reputation Management
A sustainable system aims to generate value and endure, being economically viable, socially fair and environmentally right. Companies today are facing increasing pressure from multiple stakeholders for sustainable behavior. Each group of stakeholders has varying expectations regarding the company's sustainable operation. This is made evermore clear when society demands openness and transparency on behalf of large companies; consumers are willing to pay an extra price on products that guarantee the source of its raw materials and the destination of its waste; and investors expect trustful information about the company's operations. While the theme of sustainability has made its way into the media spotlight, numerous companies have begun reporting on their environmental and societal impact in addition to their economic performance.
Balancing multiple stakeholder expectations in this realm with organizational initiatives is a great challenge for organizations interested in effectively managing reputation. With the objectives of promoting the exchange of experiences, showcasing best practices and further deepening the academic discussion, Reputation Institute is hosting the 14th Annual Conference on Corporate Reputation, Brand, Identity and Competitiveness, held in Rio de Janeiro, around the theme "The Sustainability Imperative: A Strategic Role for Reputation Management".
