5th GRI Global Conference: Empowering Sustainable Decisions

18 - 20 May 2016

ERM is proud to be network partner of the 5th GRI (Global Reporting Initiative) Conference in Amsterdam.

ERM has been a GRI Organisational Stakeholder (now known as the GOLD community) for five years, and has published its last three Sustainability Reports to the GRI G4 Guidelines.

As a Network Partner, ERM looks forward to the Conference which sets out to be an inclusive platform to inspire and engage a truly global network of sustainability leaders. The theme of Empowering Sustainable Decisions is timely as business leaders deal with challenging market conditions which require both operational and strategic response. We look forward to engaging with others in these important discussions so we can collectively build knowledge, best practices and experience to make more informed and sustainable decisions.
