#Reporting and Communications


BSR will host a members-only conversation with GRI’s new chief executive Tim Mohin about the future priorities and direction of GRI. Tim was appointed as chief executive in December 2016 and is now undertaking a listening tour to hear from GRI’s various stakeholders.

Tim joined GRI having previously held leadership positions at several of the world’s largest companies—Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), Apple, and Intel—as well as previous experience at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Senate.

His appointment comes at an important time for GRI and for sustainability disclosures. GRI recently released the new GRI Standards and participates in a number of efforts, such as the Corporate Reporting Dialogue, to help shape the future of the overall sustainability reporting landscape. This includes SDG Leadership through Reporting, a new initiative with the UN Global Compact, which will help businesses incorporate the Sustainable Development Goals into their corporate reporting.

Join us for a conversation with Tim about how the GRI can bring about its vision of a future where sustainability is integral to every organization’s decision-making process.
