On Wednesday 28 November, GRI will host a session at the UN Forum on Business and Human Rights in Geneva, 'Toward meaningful reporting on human rights’. This session will invite discussion on what is needed to increase and improve corporate human rights reporting and communication, including barriers to reporting and how these may be overcome, as well as how best to report on human rights due diligence and human rights impacts.
Sustainability reporting can really help companies of all sizes, and anywhere in the world to improve their own processes and publicly demonstrate their responsible business practices. Through its Competitive Business Program and with with the support of SECO (Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs), GRI helped SMEs in Ghana report for the first time. Participating SMEs and GRI learnt that sustainability reporting can lead to clear business benefits for smaller companies in developing countries, and that digital tools can encourage and facilitate reporting.
GRI and CDP share an ambition: to drive corporate sustainability reporting and use of data to inform decision-making. Both organizations want to catalyze action towards creating social, environmental and economic benefits for everyone – and work collaboratively towards this goal.
