Cisco technology and people are accelerating global problem solving in ways that have never been attempted before. From solving customers’ business challenges to tackling the toughest social and environmental issues of our time, we are helping to make the impossible possible.
We use our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Report to share how we are managing and measuring progress against our CSR goals, as well as to respond to a broad set of stakeholder expectations and inquiries we receive throughout the year.
While some of you know me as a steward of our corporate social responsibility (CSR) efforts, my history with Cisco goes back much further to my first role in business development. How might you ask did my journey take me from business development to where I am today?
Join GRI's 3rd Annual Reporters' Summit on 25 February 2019 in Arizona
The one-day event brings together sustainability reporting practitioners from around North America, to follow practical sessions focused on how to make the most of the GRI Standards for their organization.
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.
November for GRI has been about cooperation, working with companies to kick-off or improve their reporting, and with other frameworks to achieve better alignment. From GRI in the Corporate Reporting Dialogue, to its participation in P4G in Denmark, the emphasis is on alliance and collaboration.
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.
Reputation, quite simply, is everything. It is painstakingly built and carefully protected, yet, can implode in a moment and take years to reconstruct. In short, every reputational point matters. Yet there is one thing that can catapult a company into the hearts and minds of consumers over competitors: Introducing the Purpose Premium.
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.
