From generalisations about an ‘alphabet soup’ of ESG reporting standards, to debates over what stakeholder capitalism actually means – and how to differentiate between concepts of materiality - the topics covered in the new GRI Perspective series have been very varied.

Recapping these key insights into the world of sustainability reporting, our Chief Regional Officer recently contributed an opinion piece to ESG Investor:

Credible Reporting of Sustainability Impacts Benefits all Stakeholders

The reality is that informing all stakeholders is good for business. By providing comparable, verifiable information on sustainability impacts, companies show the world that they practice what they preach. Sharing ‘the GRI perspective’ is part of our efforts to improve understanding by all stakeholders – while making the case for the transition to a more transparent and accountable corporate reporting system."
