GLRPPR Sector Resource: The Next Era of Corporate Disclosure

Title:
The Next Era of Corporate Disclosure

Abstract:
Sustainability data is at the heart of the strategic decision-making processes which can lead us towards a more sustainable economy and world. Over the past decade we have seen a dramatic increase in the number of companies measuring their sustainability performance with thousands of organizations beginning to see the value in monitoring their sustainability impacts.

We are now on the cusp of a new era: the way we capture, analyze and use sustainability data is about to be transformed. We are moving from an era where sustainability information is collected and reported, to an era in which stakeholders -- including the companies themselves -- are using this information to learn more about their organizations, their risks and opportunities, and learning to make better decisions.

GRI and partners -- business representatives;civil society; academia; labor; public and intergovernmental agencies; and others -- have worked together over the last 15 years to establish a global language to gather and publish sustainability data and information. Today, we can see the valuable results of this work: thousands of public sustainability reports, many other related sustainability disclosures, indexes, and global and local sustainability goals.
