SUSTAINABILITY AND REPORTING 2025

The Sustainability and Reporting 2025 project has been established to discover what the main issues will be in companies' agendas – and consequently in their public reports – 10 years from now
 

 SUSTAINABILITY AND REPORTING 2025: AN INTERNATIONAL DIALOGUE

 
GRI’s Sustainability and Reporting 2025 is designed to promote an international discussion about the purpose of sustainability reporting and disclosures looking ahead to 2025. Over a 12-month period, thought leaders in various fields are interviewed on subjects ranging from data technology to society and business development scenarios, with the aim of identifying main issues that will – or should be – at the center of companies’ agendas and their public reports. 
Introduction to the Sustainability and Reporting 2025 project by Nelmara Arbex, Chief Advisor Innovation in Reporting, GRI​
 
 
 

Throughout 2015, GRI generated articles, videos and analysis papers based on these interviews, and disseminated them to its global network of more than 20,000 organizations and individuals. The final digital publication - The Next Era of Corporate Disclosure: Digital, Responsible, Interactive - presents a roadmap for the future of reporting.

If you have questions about the project please see the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) document. For further information contact the Sustainability and Reporting 2025 project team.

 ANALYSIS PAPERS

 
​GRI created the Sustainability and Reporting 2025 project to promote global conversation on the future of sustainability reporting and disclosure. These papers examine the key decisions businesses will focus on in the next decade in order to transition to a sustainable economy, and how disclosure and reporting should be shaped to support decision makers in this process.


The Next Era of Corporate Disclosure: Digital, Responsible, Interactive is a digital publication that maps out the future of sustainability reporting and disclosure. It is the culmination of the first year of GRI's continuing Sustainability and Reporting 2025 project, and provides conclusive insights from the discussions on which type of information will be needed to tackle the most critical challenges in the next decade and how data technology should be used to enable this journey.
