A new economy is emerging that requires expanded methods for identifying, measuring and quantifying entirely new forms of business risk and value. Courageous corporate leaders have already spurred aggressive action toward identifying and valuing these costs and impacts, and brands leading the charge have demonstrated their ability to adopt new metrics and practices that lead to demonstrably better business performance. They are successfully translating previously ignored economic, environmental and social impacts into corporate financial performance indicators that have led to successful business results.
