The successful company of tomorrow will have an integrated strategy to achieve financial results and create lasting value for itself, its stakeholders and society.
Integrated thinking will enable companies to factor sustainability into their operations, business models, and measures of success. Integrated reporting aims to bridge the gap between financial and non-financial performance. And collaboration between organizations and stakeholders, across sectors and regions, will mean that shared values and best practices can accelerate change towards a sustainable global economy.
By integrating the learning from the Conference, participants will also be inspired to act and interact: leading to a new call for action, and supporting a new mandate for GRI.
Achieving a sustainable global economy is an innovation challenge. Organizations and companies worldwide need to be innovative in the way they are managed and do business. Stakeholder engagement, organizational responsibilities, value creation, community engagement: in these and other areas, many leaders are already showing the way.
Conference participants will be invited to explore today’s key sustainability challenges, offer solutions, and co-design the future.
Innovation also underpins the continuous improvement of GRI’s Sustainability Reporting Framework. The Conference will see the launch of the new G4 Guidelines, providing organizations and companies with a new resource for measuring sustainability, improving transparency, and defining responsibility.
Growth and prosperity depend on our ability to meet today’s most pressing sustainability challenges. Climate change, resource scarcity, financial corruption, human rights abuses: these interlinked challenges need joined-up, collaborative solutions.
Leading organizations are showing the way with greater transparency and more responsible practices. Sustainability reporting adds value: Around the world, thousands of organizations now report their economic, environmental, social and governance performance.
More than ever, we need a robust reporting framework that enables companies to account for their impacts; communicate how they will create value; and give investors, governments and consumers the information they need to make better decisions.
With a theme of Information – Integration – Innovation, the 2013 Global Conference on Sustainability and Reporting will unite over 1500 delegates from business, finance, accountancy, consultancy, civil society, government, labor and academia. These sustainability leaders will connect, share knowledge, and collaborate – to accelerate the transition to a sustainable global economy.
