Prof. Krishnakumar joins the B-Lab / United Nations Global Compact Advisory Group
We are proud to announce that Jaya Krishnakumar, Professor of Econometrics at the GSEM, was appointed member of the B-Lab / United Nations Global Compact SDG platform Advisory Group.
B-Lab in collaboration with the United Nations Global Compact is developing an online platform to allow companies around the globe to evaluate their impact through their performance on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The publicly available tool — to be launched in 2020 — will allow business to assess, compare and improve their performance against the Global Goals. It will provide them with access to online resources on sustainable business and give them an opportunity to benchmark against peers and key indicators.
As a member of the Advisory Group, Prof. Jaya Krishnakumar will guide the design process of the evaluation tool as well as the scoring methodology.May 14, 2019
