Erika Karp, CEO and Founder of Cornerstone Capital Group, will participate at this conference.
Join GRI and up to 1,500 sustainability leaders from around the globe to exchange leading-edge knowledge on sustainability best practices, innovations and trends that are empowering sustainable decisions and changing the world.
Empowering Sustainable Decisions
The 5th GRI Conference will create an inclusive platform to inspire and engage a truly global network of sustainability leaders.
GRI pioneered sustainability reporting in the late 1990’s and has since become the globally accepted standard for enabling business, governments and other organizations to understand and communicate their impacts on critical sustainability issues. As we move towards a new era of sustainability, it is clear that for information to truly empower decision making it must be more accessible, comparable and available in real time. GRI’s focus at the 2016 Conference is to deliver innovative sustainability content that embraces this new era, enable capacity building, networking, and peer-to-peer learning.
13:00 – 14:00
Thinking Ahead: How the investor community is changing its need for sustainability reporting and analysis
The session will examine how investors and investment firms are classifying, using and integrating sustainability data to make informed investment decisions. The conversation will highlight how the investor community’s interest in ESG data is becoming ‘mainstream’ and how corporations are responding to that demand for greater transparency and disclosure. Additionally, we will look to the future to consider what new tools, resources, opportunities will support how companies increase trust, to support more sustainable investments.
