Sustainable Business Roundtable (SBRT)

SBRT Reporting with Impact


SBRT "Reporting with Impact: Linking ESG Reporting and Managerial Decision Making"

(June 19, 2024 at ESMT Berlin)

The Sustainable Business Roundtable (SBRT), founded in 2011, is a peer-to-peer learning network for a group of excellent companies that have a global footprint and that are leading the sustainability revolution.

We combine cutting edge academic insight with open discussion of best practices, challenges, and opportunities that companies face in the strive to embed sustainability in their respective organizations.

Our unique value proposition is that we showcase the interface that sustainability has with the other departments of the company, such as human resources, marketing, investor relations. We convene twice a year and always invite two representatives from every company – the sustainability manager and a colleague from another area (e.g., marketing, supply chain, human resources). This creates a rich environment for debate and discussion in the room.

The 23 international members include Accenture, ams OSRAM, Bain & Company, BNP Paribas, Bosch, Consumer Panel Services GfK, Deutsche Bank, DHL Group,  Deutsche Telekom, E.ON, H&M, ING, McDonald’s, Merck, Mitsui, P&G, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Quadriga Capital, Schwarz Group, Siemens, TechMahindra, UniCredit, and Volkswagen.

To learn more about the SBRT and be invited to the next Roundtable, please contact Joanna Radeke, Director of the ESMT Institute for Sustainable Transformation at ESMT Berlin.
