The Sustainability Consortium (TSC) is pleased to announce its inaugural Latin America event. On Tuesday, April 24 in Santiago, Chile, The Consortium will launch the Chilean Hub, the first official representation of a global initiative in the region.

Resulting from a joint strategic effort between The Consortium and long time international partners Fundación Chile and Walmart Chile, the organization looks forward to addressing the vast opportunities in Latin America. TSC will continue to develop increased capacity in support of the Sustainability Measurement and Reporting System through the timely integration of regional and local expertise.

Corporate, academic, non-governmental, and governmental participants from Chile, Brazil, and Mexico will join The Sustainability Consortium in reflecting on the diversity of this global organization while acknowledging the common pressing challenges among nations.
