ISSP's Next Webinar: The Sustainability Reporting Standards - What are they and what do they mean for me?

Wednesday, February 8, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. PT

Alyson Genovese, GRI

Since 2000, GRI's Sustainability Reporting Guidelines have been used by thousands of organizations in more than 90 countries to report publicly about their impacts on the economy, the environment, and society. Now, the world's most widely-adopted sustainability reporting guidelines have been further refined to become the first-ever Sustainability Reporting Standards. Find out about the GRI G4 Guidelines transition to the GRI Sustainability Reporting Standards, and how this will impact your reporting.

The new GRI Standards aim to make sustainability reporting more accessible for organizations and policy-makers, and to encourage more consistent, higher quality sustainability reporting, focused on material issues. This webinar will help you learn the key components of the Standards, how they have evolved from the G4 Framework and understand what this transition means for your organization.
Webinars are free for ISSP members.  Register now!
