Replay of the World Forum Lille 2013 CSR Lab Conference : CSR reporting, tied to performance and GRI's G4 guidelines - October 24th 2013
In today’s world, it is crucial that businesses incorporate a sustainability strategy into the heart of their activities. A key tool for measuring sustainability impacts and defining a strategy is "sustainability reporting". GRI's G4 Guidelines place even greater emphasis on the concept of materiality, encouraging organizations to only provide disclosures that are material, based on dialogue with their stakeholders.
This condition should allow organizations to concentrate on the sustainability impacts that really matter and transform their business strategy. In this session, we provide a brief review of how GRI's G4 Guidelines focus on materiality and the related aspect of boundary-setting for an organization.
We then examine the implications for a variety of stakeholders: What do investors, civil society and the reporting organizations themselves think of these developments?
