Why GRI G4 Will Trigger New Directions In Sustainability Reporting (Webinar)
In May 2013, the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) launches the G4 guidance for voluntary sustainability reporting – the first full update in the framework used for seven years by more than 5,000 firms. At the same time stock exchanges around the world are implementing guidelines agreed at Rio+20, a handful of governments have imposed new mandatory GHG and LCA reporting rules, and the accounting profession continues to push the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) as well as the more recently launched Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB).
Faced with this flurry of activity, what are the new best practices for sustainability reporting? How should heads of sustainability link mandatory reporting, voluntary frameworks and financial reporting? Based on multiple Verdantix benchmarks covering stock exchanges, responsible supply chain assessments and our global survey of 250 heads of sustainability, this webinar helps heads of sustainability to chart out the best practices for sustainability reporting in a post GRI G4 world.
