ERM Webinar: Insights into the new GRI Standards
What do the GRI Standards mean for disclosure and sustainable development? How are the Standards different from the G4 Guidelines? How should reporters approach implementation?
ERM held a global webinar series to share our insights on the GRI Standards released in October 2016, including takeaways from global GRI launch events and insights from our reporting and assurance specialists around the world – Europe, India, Singapore, South Africa, North and South America.
Key topics covered include:
- Nature of the changes from “Guidelines” to “Standards”
- Connections to evolving expectations for disclosure (SDGs, regulatory and stock exchange instruments)
- Approaches to implementation
- Impacts on report assurance
- Global insights into reporting in different markets
