From May 18-20, 2016, I joined the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Global Conference. Here are my overall takeaways, highlights and concerns from this three-day event, focused on collaboration, the SDGs, big data and action for impact.
GRI’s Chair Christianne Wood opened the conference with powerful words to inspire collaboration. “There is no room for isolated interests, the multi-stakeholder nature is what makes GRI so strong.” She also shared her conviction that the process of reporting is more important that the report itself. It needs to inform decision-making for impact.
