Americans have seen the power of their activism to enact change. From boycott hashtags, student protests and outspoken employees, consumers have been a driving force for progress on social and environmental issues.

Oxfam recognized that issue and is arming consumers with facts to help facilitate a conversation with supermarkets around the world.
Continued degradation of environmental resources and failing to provide safe and healthy working environments globally have put water and OHS high on the global agenda, and are relevant to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Anyone who watched this year’s Academy Awards knows that the real leading lady of the evening was gender equality. There were a lot of strong statements on Sunday, but one that has stuck with me was Jane Fonda’s confident declaration that “what was once considered groundbreaking is now the norm.”

At Bloomberg transparency is one of our founding principles. We are bringing transparency to markets through access to information – and this includes gender equality data.
On International Women’s Day, GRI wants to highlight how transparency can help organizations work towards gender equality. We feature several examples of how the GRI Standards and GRI’s services help companies better understand their impacts on gender. We are also proudly presenting the first crowdfunded translation of the GRI Standards, for reporters in French-speaking regions.
