Setting a new global benchmark for sustainability reporting.
GRI, the world’s leading sustainability reporting standard setter, launched the updated Universal Standards on 5 October.
The updated Standards provide more guidance for determining material topics and greater clarity on the reporting principles, requirements and structure to ensure more consistent and comparable reporting. They are the first and only reporting standards that fully reflect due diligence expectations for sustainability impacts, including those on human rights, as set by the UN and OECD.
What exactly are the changes introduced in the updated Universal Standards? What does it mean for reporters and information users alike? To help answer these questions and many more, GRI is holding this free webinar open to all with an interest in reporting with the GRI Standards. We will present an overview of the contents of the Universal Standards and respond to your questions during Q&A sessions.
The updated Standards are freely available for use by any organization, regardless of size, type, location, or reporting experience.
