Leadership Forums

GRI's Corporate Leadership Groups (CLGs) provide engagement and peer learning forums to help organizations address find solutions to improve their sustainability reporting.

Our CLGs bring experts together and focus on current issues and challenges, including responding to needs that are highlighted by Community members. See below for details of our latest CLGs. 


Transparency and reporting innovation

The GRI Community offers an exclusive opportunity to join Corporate Leadership Groups. These groups seek innovative solutions to challenges common to reporters, and encourage international discussions between leading reporting companies and experts.

The work undertaken in these groups helps forge tools and approaches to improve sustainability reporting practices globally. The Corporate Leadership Groups run over the course of two years and are charged separately. As with membership, the participation fee for a Corporate Leadership Group is based on a company's revenue.


Corporate Action Group for reporting on the SDGs

GRI is working with the UN Global Compact (UNGC) to co-create the mechanisms for reporting on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As part of this project, GRI and the UNGC have formed a Corporate Action Group for business representatives.

This Corporate Action Group serves as a business engagement and peer-learning forum, where members can show leadership in their SDG practices by helping define and promote their business contributions to the SDGs.

Business Leadership Forum on Circular Economy and Waste Reporting

Businesses are now beginning to see waste in a different light. Where it used to be a burden, it is now becoming a source of opportunity for obtaining materials.

If you are looking to explore how to measure and report on your company’s progress on waste prevention and circularity, join the GRI Business Leadership Forum on Circular Economy & Waste Reporting.

Between the fall of 2020 and Spring 2021, this online program will help you to better understand the GRI: 306 Waste Standard, and broader circularity trends and measurement methodologies, and exchange experiences with a range of different stakeholders.

You can find more information here, and apply to join by contacting Piya Baptista, Manager Program Implementation at GRI.
