GRI veröffentlicht eigenen Nachhaltigkeitsbericht

19. April 2005

Die Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) hat zum ersten Mal einen Nachhaltigkeitsbericht nach den eigenen Richtlinien veröffentlicht . Die GRI ist globaler Vorreiter in Sachen Nachhaltigkeitsberichterstattung und bietet Unternehmen mit den"Sustainability Reporting Guidelines" mittlerweile weltweit akzeptierte Leitlinien an die Hand.

In einer Pressemitteilung heißt es dazu: "With a mission of developing and disseminating globally applicable Sustainability Reporting Guidelines, we knew the time had come to use them ourselves!

At a time where we were in only our second year of operation, the process of reporting helped us to evaluate the development of our policies, procedures, and management system, and was essential in helping us to develop plans to further build the GRI as an institution.

As well, the theme of the 2003-2004 report - "It's not enough to just BE" - emerged from our analysis and was one of our key discoveries -- that although our organisation is dedicated to sustainable development and sustainability reporting, we had been neglecting to ensure that the development of our own organisation was being done in a systematically sustainable fashion."
