GRI launches a new community membership in order to stimulate businesses in their journey towards a more sustainable future
GRI launches a new community membership in order to stimulate businesses in their journey towards a more sustainable future.
GRI – the Global Reporting Initiative – has just launched a new programme designed to reach a new level of sustainability commitment and increase benefits for those who show the greatest success in doing it.
The initiative has been already backed up by more than 550 organisations from all over the world, representing more than 35 sectors of the world`s economy and including names such as PepsiCo and Suncor, with the shared aim to become a leading point of reference for all those companies and businesses keen to take action and play their part in tackling climate change and global warming related issues.
GRI Chief Executive Michael Meehan said “The GOLD Community is made up of leading organizations that are helping GRI shape the future of sustainability. GOLD Community members are the core of GRI’s global network and through their participation they play a crucial role in enabling us to carry out our mission”. “With last year’s arrival of the post-2015 Development Agenda and the ambitious agreements made at COP 21, businesses have been called upon to take action towards a more sustainable world. The GRI GOLD Community will help its members unlock the real value of sustainability information to support these important goals.”
The name of the community stays for:
Gateways to networking and collaboration
Opportunities for profiling and visibility
Leading edge knowledge and insights
Dedicated services and support
And reflects all the advantages that being a member of the GOLD community means.
Indeed, all the organisations and companies pledging to be part of this new exciting GRI`s project will benefit from fantastic networking opportunities, and will receive constant updates on the latest insights and trends in the sustainability reporting community.
All the GOLD community members will gather together for the first time this May at the 5th GRI Global Conference on 18 – 20 May in Amsterdam.
Looks like it`s going to be an amazing shining gold sustainable future!
