SFTA Pop Up Webinar: What Have We Done for You Lately?

October 31, 2019 at 11am PT / 2pm ET

“What have you done for me lately?” A quintessential question that pervades pop music, personal relationships, and business dealings. SFTA will answer that question for its current and prospective members in a pop-up virtual session on Thursday, October 31st. Register here.

Attendees will have the opportunity to meet SFTA’s new Executive Director, Alyssa Harding, and re-acquaint themselves with SFTA’s highly streamlined reporting system, extensive programming, and analytic resources, including SFTA service modules. Service modules are a recurring annual member benefit – and can help companies carry out a spectrum of activities, including sustainability materiality assessments and climate action plan analyses.

Attendees will also be offered a demonstration of, and exclusive Beta-test invitation to, HowGood’s Formulation Impact Tool. The Tool, introduced by Chief Innovation Officer Ethan Soloviev, enables product developers to rapidly assess and improve the sustainability of their formulations. Drawing from HowGood’s database of 33,000 ingredients and 1,000,000+ products, the Tool allows product developers to adjust new product ingredients and see how their overall ecological and social impact (GHG, Soil Health, Labor Risk, etc.), changes product formulation scores.

Many companies find that the Green Team is a great way to multiple the positive impacts of a company’s sustainability program. SFTA’s September Knowledge Network session is dedicated to exploring the challenges and advantages of using a green team as an extension of your sustainability program. The session kicks off with a member panel of sustainability experts from Mountain Rose Herbs and GoMacro. Both companies have worked with their own Green Teams for several years. After the opening panel, the session opens to group discussion to dig deeper. This will be an informal meeting format, incorporating the use of webcams for speakers and encouraging all participants to submit any questions they might have to the panel, and speak up with comments and questions. Attendees will walk away with new ideas on how to best invigorate green teams, common organizational structures, how to coordinate across multiple locations, and more.

GHG Inventory expert Good Company will describe the foundational components of Scope 3 inventory tracking, including components such as employee commuting, transportation of ingredients and finished goods, co-packing and farming emissions. Open-source tools that exist to help calculate Scope 3 emissions will be reviewed, and approaches to assess or engage supply chain partners in the process will be highlighted. In particular, attendees at all stages of inventory management will benefit from learning about methodologies for tracking whether they are in beginning, intermediate, or advanced stages of Scope 3 inventory assessments.
