Today businesses do sustainability reporting to ascertain the long-term financial decision’s probability of business success. Further, it reveals new and emerging social and environmental trends and issues for the existing business model. Sustainability reporting facilitates access to capital, builds trust amongst stakeholders and fosters transparency. Most popular sustainability standards like GRI, ISSB (IFRS Foundation), and upcoming ESRS (EFRAG(CSRD)) assist companies to enhance corporate reputation, boost consumer confidence, increase innovation, and risk mitigation.
The “Disclosing Sustainability” webinar will provide an overview of the sustainability challenges, the reporting landscape and how GRI standards support the company in the structured reporting of sustainability information.
