This year, the theme of GRI’s third biennial conference was ”Re-think, Re-build, Report” The conference was held at Amsterdam on May 25-28, 2010, which i had a privilege to attend. The conference flagged important directions in the Corporate Sustainability Reporting, especially, on how we re-think, what we re-build and who we report to.
It’s been over a decade that sustainability reporting under GRI guidelines is practiced. This led to a debate on voluntary versus mandatory approaches to reporting. In this regard, the most significant direction tabled at the conference was a move toward integrated reporting through the convergence of ESG and financial reporting, with the two definite goals, as announced by the GRI CEO Mr.Ernst Ligteringen.
by 2015, all large and medium-sized companies in OECD countries and fast-growing emerging economies should be required to report publicly on their ESG performance or, if they don’t, explain why.
a standard for integrated reporting should be defined, tested and adopted by 2020.
With a view to support organizations’ sustainability and sustainability reporting journey, Insight Associates offers capacity building courses on the subject. Our brochure to this effect is enclosed.
