In the late 90s, the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) took the initiative of developing guidelines for sustainability reporting. Those guidelines are getting an increasing following and so the GRI has been able to develop worldwide into a tireless driver for a more sustainable world. Now the Paris Agreement is a fact and the EU has made sustainability reporting the norm, we are on the verge of a new era. The GRI Global Conference 2016 promises to be more than inspiring.
‘The focus of the GRI 2016 Conference is to embrace this new era and accelerate progress by delivering innovative sustainability content and by building capability.’
The program includes Plenary Sessions, Master Classes, Academic Sessions, Regional Sessions, Breakout Sessions and a more informal Market Place. There are six key topics:
Experience teaches us that a GRI Conference is a source of inspiration for everyone who – in any way – has anything to do with sustainability reporting. Not only for the pioneers, but also for those who are still orienting themselves. It is with good reason that knowledge is power. And during the GRI Global Conference 2016 there is an abundance of knowledge.
‘Such a great event. I left feeling invigorated, inspired and excited about what we can accomplish.’ - Dave Pearson, DTTL Chief Sustainability Officer
