Practical solutions for best practice reporting in North America
06 December 2016

​There are more reporters in the US than any other country and there is a growing discipline within sustainability professionals that focuses on reporting and disclosure. Although they are often part of large corporations, sustainability professionals say it is difficult to secure ongoing support and development because the skill set is so unique. 
The first ever GRI Reporters’ Summit aims to bring them together to address their need to connect with others and gain practical solutions to challenges in strategy, information gathering, reporting and communications, helping them raise their reporting game.

Success in corporate sustainability is all about the power of partnerships – the tasks are too big to go it alone. That’s why GRI and GreenBiz are proud to partner this year to bring our diverse audiences together in order to tackle big challenges with practical solutions.

GreenBiz is offering GRI Newsletter readers a 20% discount on GreenBiz 17 – a three-day conference addressing sustainability trends, challenges and opportunities within the context of business – with the code GB17GRI.

Boost your reporting in 2017
Rather than replicating the many sustainability conferences that already exist, the Summit is designed explicitly for professionals who direct and manage the sustainability reporting function within their organizations. Participants will take away specific tools, case studies and practical solutions to help them be more effective stewards of their organizations’ sustainability management and reporting journeys.

The GRI Reporters’ Summit will take place on 13 February 2017 in Scottsdale, Arizona. It will feature a variety of workshops, providing you with expert reporting guidance on important topics, including:
Transitioning from G4 to the GRI Sustainability Reporting Standards
Best practices in materiality assessment
Engaging with supply chain
Disclosures on Management Approach
Emerging non-financial reporting regulations
Connecting your reporting to the Sustainable Development Goals
Sustainability reporting for first-time reporters
Using reporting to drive internal and external change
