GRI Global Conference 2016

Join GRI and up to 1,500 sustainability leaders from around the globe to exchange leading-edge knowledge on best practices, innovations and trends that are empowering sustainable decisions and changing the world.

The Conference will be an inclusive platform to inspire and engage a truly global network of sustainability leaders. As we move towards a new era of sustainability, it is clear that for information to truly empower decision making it must be more accessible, comparable and available in real time.

GRI pioneered sustainability reporting in the late 1990’s and today provides the architecture for sustainability information through GRI Sustainability Reporting Standards, the engine for this data. GRI Standards are foundational to the organization’s work towards its vision of a future where sustainability is integral to every organization’s decision-making process. This enables business, governments and other organizations to understand and communicate their impacts on critical sustainability issues.

he focus of the GRI 2016 Conference is to embrace this new era and accelerate progress by delivering innovative sustainability content and by building capability.

Join us and shape the future of sustainable decision making.
