GRI’s Business Leadership Forums (BLFs) facilitate collaboration between companies and stakeholders through active engagement and peer learning, leveraging thought leadership to help find solutions for impactful sustainability reporting.
Our BLFs bring sustainability experts and stakeholders together and focus on current issues and challenges, actively responding to the needs of the GRI Community members.
GRI has been running leadership groups and forums since 2015, inspiring corporate and stakeholder collaboration and focusing on a diverse range of sustainability reporting trends and challenges, which include digital as well as integrated reporting, conflict minerals, circular economy, and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We have also partnered with other leading organizations, such as the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC), the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), PwC, the Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI), the Responsible Labor Initiative (RLI) and many more, to deliver the most impactful content and results. Reports produced from previous forums are included below.
The work undertaken in these groups helps forge tools and approaches to improve sustainability reporting practices globally. For example, resources produced by the Business reporting on the SDGs BLF, currently underway, guide thousands of businesses around the world on SDGs integration into sustainability reporting. Watch this video to learn about the experiences of participating organizations.
As participants, we have had the opportunity to hear and learn the different points of view that are expressed around the same table – this is how good decisions are taken.Michel Washer (Deputy Chief Sustainability Officer) – Solvay
