​The Forum is open to all who believe that sustainability reporting is necessary and beneficial – that companies should reveal their performance or the reasons why they don’t.

As an investor acting on behalf of customers with long-term investment needs, Aviva Investors is pleased to support GRI’s Report or Explain Campaign. Our customers after all, rightly, expect us to help ensure the companies we invest in are behaving responsibly.
 
Markets are driven by information. If the information they receive is short term and thin then these characteristics will define our markets. As a founder member of the UN Principles for Responsible Investment we have long believed that consideration of environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues is relevant to firm-level performance.
 
For our part, we have committed to integrate ESG data into our buy, sell, and hold investment decisions, into the feedback we transmit to the companies that invest, and into our voting at company AGMs. However, there remains a data gap and therefore we believe that the world now needs to move from the innovative and pioneering approach of a minority of companies to sustainability reporting being a true global mainstream practice for all companies.
