GACSO is working with IEMA in a transformative collaboration – to help shape the corporate sustainability agenda and to understand and respond to the needs of sustainability professionals. Four regional workshops are now being held providing the opportunity for practitioners (outside of London) to contribute into this developing work, including --
1. Do members agree with the directions outlined in our White Paper.
2. Further development of our sustainability lexicon (definitions and agenda)
3. What are the key challenges and principles for Corporate Sustainability?
4. What will professionalisation look like for corporate sustainability?
The workshop will be a unique chance to explore this agenda and to contribute to critical developments for the profession being taken forward by GACSO and IEMA. It is also an opportunity to learn from leading colleagues and to help us shape our specific activity programme.

Map & Directions.
Understanding the CSO role entails exploring the relationships they have with other executives in the C-suite.
What is the added perspective that a CSO needs to bring to the Board? What expectations does the Board have of the CSO? What skills and competencies do CSO's need to be successful?
GACSO is engaging with professional bodies to explore these questions and lead the work to develop greater understanding and insights into this dynamic.
The aim of this first meeting in the series is to explore the potential for ICAEW and GACSO members to collaborate on a joint initiative. They will collaboratively identify key business and sustainability issues that are common to the FD's and CSO's responsibilities and then go on to define their respective roles and collaborative strategies for addressing them within their organisations.
The PROVISIONAL date has been changed and a new date will be confirmed shortly. (The website requires a date explaining the current setting).
