Abstract of her paper "The Uncertainty of Corporate Sustainability Metrics":

We propose a framework to assess corporate sustainability metrics based on the uncertainty associated with the effectiveness of the metric and its measurement. We argue that organizations should use outcome metrics when uncertainty in measuring the performance outcome is low and process-based metrics when the outcome is difficult to measure or the link between process and outcome is undetermined. When both types of uncertainty are high, it is unclear whether metrics should be used at all. We explore stakeholder perceptions of metric uncertainty and our framework through a survey on carbon offsets. Our framework enriches our understanding of the uncertainty associated with corporate sustainability disclosures and can be useful for government agencies thinking about mandated disclosures, for managers thinking about what metrics to disclose, and for researchers developing or using sustainability metrics.
