The social transformation methodology: Join one or more consultation roundtables in July and August

Until 7 September 2020, the World Benchmarking Alliance is consulting on its approach to the social transformation, including the core social indicators that will be applied to the 2,000 most influential companies globally. The draft methodology, which is the focus of the consultation, is accessible [PDF 0] : here. It sets out the consultation questions in detail.
