Taking Responsibility by Managing Impacts
May 29, 2020 /3BL Media/ - Management approach disclosures are an essential aspect of sustainability reporting, providing the context for stakeholders to understand how a company manages their impacts on the economy, the environment, and society. The Management Approach Disclosures Service helps organizations present these disclosures clearly and accurately, giving a platform for the most accessible and transparent reporting.
As Shivani Rajpal, Director Training and Services at GRI, explains:
“We are committed to helping more organizations to understand and communicate their impacts through the GRI Standards, the world’s most widely used sustainability reporting standards. That not only means increasing the spread of reporting, but also doing all we can to improve the quality and usefulness of disclosed data.
Effective, relevant and robust reporting starts with clearly defining the management approach to material topics, which is why we have launched this new service. GRI engages closely with reporting companies around the world and we will continue to expand and develop our services to meet their needs.”
Any business that is in the process of completing their sustainability report through the GRI Standards can arrange to use this service. GRI’s in-house experts will ensure the management approach disclosures are clearly linked to the identified material topics, as well as correctly labelled and referenced in the content index.
The Management Approach Disclosures Service is the latest addition to GRI’s reporter support and tools, which also includes Materiality Disclosures, Content Index, and SDG mapping services.
The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) is the independent international organization that helps businesses, governments other organizations understand and communicate their impacts.
