#Reporting and Communications


In October 2016, the GRI transitioned from the G4 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines to the new GRI Sustainability Reporting Standards. The GRI Standards are the latest evolution of GRI’s reporting disclosures, which have been developed through more than 15 years of a multistakeholder process. The Standards are based on the GRI G4 Guidelines and feature an improved format and new modular structure.

This webinar will help demystify the practical implications of the new GRI Standards for companies making the transition from the GRI G4 Guidelines. The webinar will also consider the potential impact of the GRI Standards on the longer-term development of sustainability reporting. And participants will get a sneak preview of what’s coming from GRI next year, including reviews of the Standards related to water, occupational health and safety, and human rights.

Speakers

  • Chelsea Reinhardt, Deputy Director, Standards Division, GRI
  • Dunstan Allison-Hope, Vice President, BSR
  • Jonathan Morris, Associate Director, BSR
