A message from the Chairman of Global Reporting Initiative (GRI)
It has been quite a year. During 2020 we have all had to adapt to the ‘new normal’ of life and work in an extended pandemic. At GRI, that has meant refocusing our services and engagements to met the needs of our customers, stakeholders and partners. For example, our full events program and reporter support services quickly transitioned to be fully online.
